75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 2, 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 Sunday, May 2:
Slept 13 hours. Cleaned house, ironed & went to church. Rained all day. Ironed all pm. Cleaned up, & got ready for nite. Pete came at 8:00. Went to "Stowaway." In pickup with Elmer & Helen to Bayard.
Here is the long entry for Sunday, May 2:
Slept my customary 13 hrs. again. Cleaned upstairs, ironed, & got ready for church. Sat with Helen & Mildred. Rained all day. Ironed curtains in pm. Listened to all the good programs, took a bath & got ready for nite. Pete came at 8:00. Went to "Stowaway." In Pick Up with Elmer & Helen to Bayard. [Three lines of shorthand].
My comments: Buzz told me on the phone last week that he thought Eileen started writing her "secret" notes in shorthand so that her brothers, Buzz and Leo, could not get in and read them.
