75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 26, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 26, 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.

May 1936 High School Graduation Photo

Here is the short entry for Wednesday, May 26:

Typed. Mr. B. to Carroll. Drove out to Pete's in storm after dinner. Went to sleep by the school house. To skating rink watching the Sophs. Bud asked me to dance. I didn't. With Pete afterwards in Paulines' Ford. Big tree again.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, May 26:

My finger that I hurt when I caught the ball bothered my typing. Typed till 10:30 & the(n) Mr. Browning went to Carroll. Got new stockings & handkerchiefs. Dad & I home to dinner. Bussy on picnic. I drove out to Pete's after dinner in the storm. Drove up to Ida Marie's school & went to sleep. To skating rink watching 'Sophomores.' Out home long enough to change clothes & then in skating with Lund's. Bud Boots asked me to dance but I had on rubber soles so didn't. Now I suppose he's mad! Who cares! With Pete afterwards in Paulines's Ford. Big tree again. [few shorthand notes] 1:00!

My comments: Quite a day!!

Pauline is Pete's older sister - she was a nurse by then, I'm pretty sure.

Glad to see Pete and Eileen stayed out late, together!!  ;-)

This photo is of Star School, a rural one-room country school near Pete's families farm, where he and all his sibling went, as well as my wife, and her parents, as well! [I doubt this was "Ida Marie's" school, but it is a one-room country school like hers!]

Families are Forever!  ;-)
