My family came to what is now Boulder, Colorado, arriving when Boulder was three months old. My Great-great-grandfather was Carson W. Arbuthnot and with him, he brought his four sons and a son-in-law. Since a little child I have loved the history of this beautiful mountain area, the legacy's of the Natives who were here when my family arrived, and the way our community has grown to what it is today. My blog is dedicated to seeking evidence of all that happened. The good, the bad and the ugly, I will share the evidence of what I find.

I also share Boulder County and Colorado History through entertaining storytelling. Dressed as one of my early Boulder County ancestors, I will make you laugh, smile and sometimes cry as I share the stories of the people who came before us and who established these communities that we enjoy today. Please visit my storytelling and events pages for information on performances.

Welcome to my blog, I hope you enjoy your time here.

March 26, 1942 Diary

Thursday, 85th Day - 280 Days to Follow

Written by Margie Arbuthnot

Cold and some cloudy today. Don plowed here today.
The girls came out from Boulder - here for dinner.
Aunt Ione and I made more jelly today.
Donnie went to Altona Grange Hall with the Hornbackers tonight to a 4H club picture show.
I am writing a letter to Nora tonight.

Click here for a 1940's film on farming and the new products for the future.  I don't know what the film was that Donnie saw at the grange, but this is the kind of thing that was shown to the 4H kids.
