75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 29, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 29, 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.

Here is the entry for Monday, March 29:

 Cloudy, not cold. Rode out to corner with Edith Parker. Walked rest of way. Listened to Fibber & Molly. To Carroll to dance. Home about 2:00. In the house about 3:00. "You old Meany."

Here is the long entry for Monday, March 29:

[word: "pro-curler" added across top] Not very cold but cloudy. Mr. Browning had the fire going nicely when I got here. [She had underlined that sentence, later] Typed Smith & Muensterman case. [underlined all but first word, later] Bussy had his teeth cleaned after school. Rode out to corner with Edith Parker. Sat on D. Sigler's lap. Some thrill. Walked rest of way home. [Sentence underlined, later] Cleaned up & listened to Fibber & Molly. Down to the barn watching them milk while waiting for Pete. [Whole sentence underlined later] Came a little after 8:00. Had a good time. Got there in time for the 1st dance. Edith, Harold, I. Edith, Kenneth, Lee Davidison, Orville, Ed Kult there from our bunch. Home about 2:00. In house about 3:00. "You old Mean."

My comments: I'll let you interpret the last three sentences…  ;-) [Don't think she wanted to go in!]

I'm going back to Sunday: "Rogers new Chrysler" - what did a 1937 new Chrysler look like?

Perhaps like this:

Families are Forever!  ;-)
