75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 19, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 19, 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 Monday, July 19:

Swell day. Lots of hail repts. Roy Anderson had a heavy loss. Afraid Pete's is hurt quite badly -----
All of us lazy. Went riding & to town in pm. Embroidered. Did up nite work & set on the porch awhile. Bed at 9:00.

Here is the long entry for Monday, July 19:

[At top of page: If I stood much closer I'd be in back of you. Marx. - no doubt from the movie the prior night!]
Warmer & sunny. Quite a lot of hail damage here. Wonder what Pete's doing; besides thinking of me. Hope his head's O.K… All morning getting dishes done. Every one sleepy. I got dinner. Mom laid down awhile. Did dishes & Bussy & I went to town. Got embroidery wk. Drove out to Pete's. Hail really fixed their corn. Bet he's sick about it. Now we can't get married I suppose! - - -
Embroidered awhile & did up the nite work. Chasing the sheep. They're really nice. Listened to radio & set out on porch. To bed at 9:00.

My comments: Oh, my. Hail damage is devastating. You have know idea how bad it might be - makes so much difference at what stage the corn is at.

First mention of sheep. Suppose they are new?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
