75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 18, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 18, 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, July 18:

Up early. Nice cool. Did sep, fried chicks & got picnic things ready. Pete here at 11:30. Cut his head awful. Went to the Dr & had it cleaned. To Spring brook eating in the rain. Keen time. To Jefferson "Day at Races."

Here is the long entry for Sunday, July 18:

Cool again. Up before 7:00. Fried 2 chickens on range, made salad & got ready for the picnic. Pete here before 12:00. He had a bad gash in his head. Went to the doctor. Shaved it! Poor kid. Went to Spring Brook in the storm. Ate in car. Hailed. Rode around. To Bayard. Saw Gers. To Scranton & Jefferson to "A Day at the Races." Grand. Looking for [shorthand note]. Home early. Pete pretending like I was someone else.

My comments: Life happens in the strangest ways, somehow. We never know what the next day will bring… suppose that is good!  ;-)

A Day at the Races (1937) was the seventh film starring the three Marx Brothers.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
