75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - January 8, 1937

75 Years Ago
Eileen's Diary
January 8, 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 8:

Dad walked to town. I didn't go to work. Lots of snow. Roads closed. Cleaned up house. Got cobs, wood, & water out doors. Cleaned library drawer. Did dishes & listened to "Nite for Murder."

Here is the long entry for Friday, January 8:

Snow really deep. Kept up all nite until about Noon today. Dad walked to town. Charlie called & said I needn't come in to work. Cleaned up the house & went out doors & did chores & looked around. No cars through all day. Dad walked home. Nearly frozen. Listened to First Nighters, did dishes, & went to bed early. Mom lots better. Really cold up stairs.

My comment: Could not find a "Nite for Murder" 1937 Radio show link; Oh, well - I'm amazed at how many I do find!  ;-)

Familes are Forever!  ;-)
