75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 24, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 24, 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 Sunday, January 24:

Really nice day. Mom still in bed. Til Noon doing dishes. Late dinner & then cleaned fret room. Pete sped supper dishes for me. "Winterset" "Smartest girl in Town."

Here is the long entry for Sunday, January 24:

Really a nice day. Mom still in bed. Up at 9:30. Till Noon doing dishes. Late dinner. Cleaned front room. Mom better. She knit awhile. Listened to all radio programs. Took a bath. Got supper & Pete came & wiped the dishes. To "Winterset" & "Smartest Girl in Town."

My comments: Two movies in one nite... and, he washed the dishes. Gotta' marry this guy!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
