75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 10, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 10, 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 Wednesday, February 10:

Real swell day. Charlie back at 1:00. Ruth & Jean here in pm. C. asleep in broom. Rode on 46 & I took Ruth home. Buss walked. I did dishes & folks listened to radio. "Goodnite My Love."

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, February 10:

 Real nice sunny day. Typed, read & listened to programs. Jean K. here quite a little while. Charley back at 1:00. Ruth & Jean here in pm. Charlie went to sleep in the back room. Left about 4:30. Ruth & I rode on 46 & then I took her home. We nearly got stuck going out home. I did dishes while folks listened to radio. Leo & Buzz built card houses. "Goodnite, My Love" was 1st on the Hit Parade. Bed at 9:30.

My comments: "Goodnight, My Love" by Benny Goodman (1937) The #1 song on the Hit Parade.
