75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 15, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 15, 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 Monday, February 15:

Weight 123# am 5'6" bust 33" - waist 26" - hips - 37." Ruth fell on nice. A stitch in head. She here in pm. I up there all nite. Toasted m.m's & I played double Sol. Bed at 11:00.

Here is the long entry for Monday, February 15:

Today I'm 5 ft 6 in tall & weigh 123 lbs. Went down to Wolf's & got measured. Bust - 33." Waist - 26" "Hips - 38." Ruth called about Noon. She fell on ice coming out of the dentist's office. Cut her forehead & had to have a stitch taken. She had 2 teeth filled too. So she was filled and felled pretty good for one day. I went up & got her & she was here all pm. Old man here. Snowing & blowing again. Ate supper at Ruth's. Played Double Solitaire & toasted M.Ms over the fire place. To bed about 11:00. Ruth's yellow & orange p.'s & red headdress. Really clever! Woo! Woo!

My comments: Apparently Eileen stayed overnight with Ruth, at Ruth's house. Nice measurements. Wonder if she ordered anythings from Wolf's - must have, to have gotten her measurements. Perhaps we will hear more, later on.
Yum!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
