75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 10, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 10, 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 short entry for Monday, May 10:

Jean at office awhile. With Edith & Lenore. Got wrist watch after work. Curled Edith's hair. Started walking home. Rode "Trucks." Went to bed early.

Here is the long entry for Monday, May 10:

Swell day. Got up at 6:00. Worked on Homestead papers. Jean here awhile. Bussy & I home to dinner. Greenwaldt gone. Read & cut out most of afternoon. With Edith & Lenore after words. Got wrist watch. Curled Ediths hair. Started walking home but "Trucks" picked me up. Ate about 8:00. Just got the dishes done & went to bed. Really tired.

My comments: Not sure about "Greenwaldt gone." and "Read & cut out most of afternoon." meant. Maybe future days will make clearer.

The Wrist Watch purchase was interesting. Was it her first?

Was it an Elgin?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
