75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 23, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 23, 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, for most days, there is both a short entry in a multi-year diary and a longer entry in a an appointment book like her diaries of past years. There is some indication the short entries were made later based on the longer entries. We still do not really know for sure.

WELL, now we know. March 8 was the last entry in the 'longer' appointment book, like in prior years. March 9 begins only entries in the shorter, 5 year diary format. How long will this last???

Here is the entry for Tuesday, March 23:

Cold & Damp. Typed most of day. Reviewed shorthand. Waited at Bk [added later: Bank] for Dad 'till 6:00. Ate, did dishes, & came in to Bk Nite with the folks "Devil Is a Sissy." Surely was good. Home at 10:30.

My comments: The Devil Is a Sissy was a 1936 American MGM comedy drama film starring Freddie Bartholomew, Jackie Cooper and Mickey Rooney.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
