75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 27, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 27, 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 27:

Nice day. Helen & I out to Pete's. Got ready for Commt. With Helen & Elmer. To Boehlers afterwards. Out on Betts road.

Here is the long entry for Thursday, May 27:

Nice day & really hot. Mr. Browning to the farm all morning. Bussy & I out home to dinner at Noon. In pm. had the Ford fixed & then Helen & I went out to Petes. Took our pictures. Back to town witting in my car. Helen, Edith, Marian G. & I. Home at 5:00. Washed some things & got ready for the Commencement. Pete came at 8:00. WIth Helen & Elmer to Boehler's afterwards. [5 lines of shorthand notes!]

My comments: Second day in a row "out to Pete's" during the day…

Commencement was apparently still a bit deal to her! No details, but a 'must do.'

I'd like to see 'Took our pictures' - wonder what that was?

Do you suppose the 1937 Commencement program looked like this one from her 1936?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
