75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - June 25, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - June 25, 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 Friday, June 25:

Cooled off. At office in morning. Folks to Textor's anniversary. Pete, Helen, Elmer & I to Laurence Welk dance. Keen time.

Here is the long entry for Friday, June 25:

Cooled off as if it were going to rain in pm. I went to work in morning. Plenty hot then. Got ready to go to the dance in pm. Folks to Textor's anniversary. Pete came about 8:30. Helen & Elmer went with us. Laurence Welk & was he ever swell. Had the keenest time. Elmer, Pete, Lee D., Hartwixen.

My comments: Well… Lawrence Welk band in Carroll - "was he ever swell" - and we watched him on TV years later. Small world, even then and there!  ;-)

From Wikipedia: "During the 1930s, Welk led a traveling big band that specialized in dance tunes and "sweet" music. Initially, the band traveled around the country by car. They were too poor to rent rooms, so they usually slept and changed clothes in their cars."
