75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 6, 1937

75 Years Ago
Eileen's Diary
January 6, 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 now 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 6:

Mom stayed in bed late. sleeting out & walks slick. Jean to school house in pm. Ate in town again. Listened to radio & finished embroidering Ferne's pillow. Still cold!

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, January 6:

Had to get breakfast again. Mom stayed in bed. Not so cold but it rained and turned to ice. Walks terribly slick. Lots colder at Noon. Bussy & I ate at Hambg. shop. Ila Jean here awhile in the morning. Fun watching people fall & stumble by. Bussy said he only fell down twice. {she had underlined} Charley stayed in. Listened to president's speech. Talked about Louisiana. {she had underlined} Jean & I took V8 up to school house. Lot of fun. Typed & watched B.B. practice. Home early. Listened to radio & I finished Ferne's Xmas pillow.
