75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 25, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 25, 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 Thursday, March 25:

Snow on the ground. CCB at Guthrie. Mrs. Taylor [Browning's mother-in-law] here all pm. Walked home from Bett's corner. Nearly frozen when I got here. Went to sleep down stairs at nite.

My comments: I have no idea what "CCB at Gurthie" means, other it is Guthrie Center, a nearby town, 25 or so miles southeast.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
