My personal “black hole” . . . and Mary’s August 1932 journal entries

I’ve been in a DNA black hole for the last few months.

And by that I mean, I’ve become addicted to anything DNA-related!

Which means I missed a few of Mary’s journal entries from August of 1932. So here they are . . . just a little late.

By the way, it looks like Mary had a few bad days in August. She was 54 years old at the time. Here’s a pic of her from about a year earlier.
