75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 19, 1937
This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of eighteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.
Since midway through 2010, a weekly update/comments blog entry began to appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Tuesday of the week, will continue, with links to these daily entries.
For 1937, the first entry available was for January 4. It was made in a multi-year diary format, so is short. Starting on January 5, there are two entries, one on the small format and a second is a full page entry. I suspect the longer entries were made later, when she got that book… there is no way to know, unless it shows up in the entries. This goes on for a couple of weeks. Let's see how it goes.
Here is the short entry for Tuesday, January 19:
Typed 4 letters for Charlie in a.m. Played "Cribbage" & "Bridge" after dinner. Bk nite with folks. Charlie Ruggles & Mary Boland. Felt like dickens. Flu.
Here is the long entry for Tuesday, January 19:
Still cold out. Typed 4 letters for Charlie in morning. After dinner he taught me to play "Cribbage" and "Bridge." Played all afternoon. At nite came in to Bk Nite with the folks. "Wives Never Know." Charles Ruggles & Mary Boland. Felt like the dickens all day. Feverish-Like flu.
My comments: I found it interesting that Charlie taught Eileen to play games; and they apparently played all day. Very interesting interaction. ;-)
Bank nite was a family movie with a drawing. Charles Ruggles and Mary Boland were the stars of "Wives Never Know."
Families are Forever! ;-)
