75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 24, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 24, 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 24:

Leo limping. Cleaned whole house. Studied shorthand. Did dishes, listened to Gracie Allen. "Goodnite My Love" was 1st on Hit Parade.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, February 24:

Leo limping terribly. Cleaned whole house. Dad & Bussy didn't come home for dinner. Studied shorthand all afternoon. I did dishes at nite. Listened to Gracie Allen, One Man's Family & Fred Allen. "Goodnite my Love was 1st on the Hit Parade.

My comments: Don't recall that I have featured Gracie Allen, recently. This is a good opportunity!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
