27 Nov – Martha Marie Wright Tennant – Five Year Diary

Diary Nov 27

1942 – Slept late Went out To rig & all guys Drunk  yesterday Nobody came out Bill is pushing Till chit comes Back He is at L. B. V

1943 – Dad got home at 8 & we went to Taft. Stayed all Night at Nona’s saw Barnes & arent sure we will sell our house.

1944 – No entry

1945 – No entry

1946 – No entry

Is she seriously reporting that the guys working the rig are drunk in the 1942 entry? No wonder work in the oil fields is so dangerous. I am wondering what L.B.V. is in the 1942 entry. Could it be the name of an oil field?
