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 Wednesday, January 27:
Real nice. Thawed a little. Bussy & I walked home at nite. Fixed Ferne's pillow & did dishes. Didn't feel so well. Have a bad cold.
Here is the long entry for Wednesday, January 27:
Real nice out. Thawing a little. Played with old Sol all morning. Dad & I out home at Noon. Buss in town. Typed & wrote letters after dinner. Real nice out after dinner. Bussy and I walked home at nite. I fixed Ferne's pillow & did the dishes. Didn't feel so well. Bad cold.
My comments: I suppose the pillow she was making was a bit smaller than these. What do you think? ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
