75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 16, 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 long entry for Sunday, May 16:
Keen day. Slept 'till 7:00. Washed separator & dishes, cleaned upstairs & got dinner in morning. In pm. cleaned downstair's rooms & planted flowers & ironed. Lyle & Ray Schauf's out home awhile. Pete came about 7:30. We went to "When You're in Love." Sat with Helen & Elmer. Quite good. 4 mile drive!
My comments: Lyle Kinnick was a first cousin, same age as Mom. Ray Schauf's wife was Helen Brock, daughter of Josephine (Williams) Brock [Mom's first cousin 1 gen removed]. Schauf's were a regular part of our extended families in the 1940s and 1950s as well. They lived in the Bayard area, within a 10 mile radius of our Coon Rapids homes.
