Wednesday. December 10, 1941

We came in with Daddy this morning and Jun, Sis, and Werner came over to visit us. I was left at the house with Mama while Mother and Daddy went over to Bordner.

The kids left around 12:30.

About 1:00 there was an air-raid. Mama and I went out front to watch the planes fighting and to watch the bombers.

A Jap plane swooped low over our house and was shooting shrapnel from a machine gun. One piece barely missed me.

It was loads of fun.
