75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 27, 1937


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 27, 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 Saturday, February 27:

Snowing again. Typed all morning. Disagreeable day. Did dishes & we 3 playing Solitaire. To bed early.

Here is the long entry for Saturday, February 27:

 In to work about 8:30. Snowing again. It seems it has to do that every week end. Typed continuously all morning in re: Brownings farm. Back again working after dinner. A disagreeable day. Took Ford home. Did dishes & then we 3 kids played Solitaire. To bed early.

My comments: Wow! She was not a happy camper!  ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
