75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 23, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 23, 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 Saturday, January 23:

Mom still in bed. Home in pm. Really got a lot of work done. Even pt of w work. Leo & Buzz in to town at nite. I cleaned south room after supper. Really nice out.

Here is the long entry for Saturday, January 23:

Mom in bed again. We went out home for dinner. Really got lots of work done. Washed stove & part of kitchen wood work. Leo to town again at nite. I stayed home & cleaned out the South room. Real nice out.

My comments: They must have been taking turns "looking after" their mother - but she never says as much. A bit curious, it seems to me.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
