75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 12, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 12, 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 Wednesday, May 12:

Keen day. Mr. Browning in Carroll. Bussy's appendix bothering. Came skating with Lizzie. Skated with Bill Vader. Took Doug, Lizzie, & Kenny home. Home before 12:00.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, May 12:

Keen day after the rain. Reading "Sheets in the Wind." Mr. Browning gone to Carroll. Can't imagine why I don't hear from Bud. Took Bussy to the Dr. at Noon. It's his appendix bothering him. Dad in Carroll so Leo came in after me at Noon. Drove around before coming to work. Took Bussy home at 4:00. Did dishes & separator. Came skating with Lizzie. Rode around till after 8:00. Quite some fun. Really missed Bud. Balloon skate with Bill Vader. Took Doug, Liz & Kenny P. home. Home before 12:00.

My comments: Really with a different crowd - and in a different mood, it seem, when she is skating!

Reading "Sheets in the Wind." she said. Sheet in the Wind was a 1934 book from Chapman & Hall, publishers, 448 pages, written by author Ridgwell Cullum. I found it in Google Books, but it had no cover photo, no description, no reviews. Abe Books had no listing. Amazon had two or three, all saying 1932… questionable sources. It is listed in 26 libraries around the world. Other books by the same author are shown my Google Books.

The author has several interesting bios: has a Bibliography of this books - it says 1932, as well. It all has this portrait!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
