75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 6, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - February 6, 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 6:

N.W. Wind. Dad & I walked in. Read in morning. Walked home at noon. Rode to town in wagon on a bale in pm. Leo after Dad in car. Listened to radio. Bed at 9:00.

Here is the long entry for Saturday, February 6:

Not so cold. N.W. Wind. Dad & I walked into town. Read most of morning. Wonder if Pete got home OK. Wish he'd call. Walked home alone at Noon. Ate dinner & then Leo, Buzz & I rode back in in wagon after groceries. Leo went after Dad in car at nite. Listened to radio & went to bed at 9:00.

My comments: Saturday afternoon they apparently rode on a wagon, with a hay bale on it to sit on, pulled by a horse. Not enough details to really know for sure.

The mention of Pete not calling portends something happened Friday night when they were visiting their couple friends that perhaps he did not like. [Something 'blowing in that wind'??] See more of this on Sunday, to follow.

Ok, lots of bales, not one bale on one wagon drawn by a horse... so, sue me!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
