75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 22, 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 Friday, January 22:
Mom coughing a lot so she stayed in bed. Ate in town. Played bridge. Pete here for awhile. Cancelled dance date! Really had messy house to clean at nite.
Here is the long entry for Friday, January 22:
Mom coughing a lot so she stayed in bed all day. Buzz & Dad & I stayed in at Noon. Had Denver Sandwich at Boehler's. Played bridge with Charlie in pm. [That last sentence underlined] Pete here for awhile. Not going to the dance. Had whole mess of dishes to do at nite. Mom still in bed.
Suppose it looked like this? ;-)
My comments: What? Who dirtied all the dishes?? ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
