75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 13, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 13, 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 Tuesday, July 13:

Ironed. Washed windows. Bk nite matinee. Washed hair. Helen & I to Beth's party for Leora. Rained. Rode in Harold Jn's new car, in rumble seat.

Here is the long entry for Tuesday, July 13:

Pretty warm. Got all the ironing done up early. Washed the windows & went in town & got new curtains. To Bank Nite matinee in pm. Washed my hair. "Thunder Over The City." Edward Arnold. Not too good but the Theatre is quite nice. At 6:00 Helen came out & we went to Beth's to the dinner party for Leora. Rained.
Impressions: [Underlined. Each name underlined; including on the side entries.]
Leora: Not changed only in figure "to the tune of about 20#."
Violet: Quiet as ever. Dieting at lot. Thicker thru' the hips.
Liz: Perhaps a little more obstinate. Rather clever. Same size.
Helen: Of course she's lots larger. Likes me more than last yr. Why?
Valeria: Says she weighs 105#. Wishes they'd ask her to play piano.
June: Little better looking & neater. Too much make-up.
Edith R: Still large & after the boys.
Beth: Loves to tell about college, Dale & Douglas.
Jean K: Same old thing only thinks she's in love.
Dorothy T: Nervous & slender as ever, anxious to go to the dance with Doug A.
Margie: A little married woman. Less gay & popular. Too bad.
[Along top] Wonder what the rest of them thought of me!

My comments: I have no idea why all the comments on those who were there. I get the impression most hadn't seen each other for at least a year. Frankly, don't recognize most of the names…

The movie was actually: "Thunder in the City" starring Edward G. Robinson!  ;-) Did he ever make a 'good' movie? Not that I ever saw - sorry, just one opinion. ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
