75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 13, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 13, 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 Thursday, May 13:
Cold out. To Ray Hagaman's after dinner. Drove all over. Mr. B. gone. Went to bed early.

Here is the long entry for Thursday, May 13:

Awfully cold out. Up early. Got breakfast. Mr. Browning there to see Dad. Dad & he to Carroll again so Bussy & I brought in the Chevy. Bussy & I out home to dinner. I went out to Roy Hagaman's after
afterwords & then drove all over the country. More fun. Read most all afternoon. Bussy had his haircut & then we went home. With Helen Bower in pm. Did separator, made white cake & got supper. Washed hair, did dishes & went to bed early.

My comments: Would the meal below more likely have been "dinner" or "supper" in 1937 at the Kinnick farm residence? She was very precise in what she called each meal, but I am uncertain which was large or more formal and which was lighter and less formal - or another combination. What do you think?  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)

  1. According to my mom (1898-1974)who was on a farm in Coffeyville, KS raising five of her six kids during the 30's, dinner was the larger mid day meal, and supper was the lighter evening meal.
