75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 22, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 22, 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, July 22:

Finished ironing. Started to work at Lt. Plant [arrow: new light plant just opened up] after dinner. Nice place. Lot of work. Verna helping too. Howard N. helping with the hay. Mowed lawn, ate late, & bed early.

Here is the long entry for Thursday, July 22:

Slept 'till 8:30. Made cake frosting & finished the ironing. Started to Work at Lt. Plant after dinner. Nice place to work but a lot of it. Verna helping. All 3 of my bosses have had the name Charles. Charles Vandaworker, Charles Browning & Now Mr. Charles. CCV smoked gobs of cigarettes, CCB loved his cigars, & Mr. Charles is never without his pipe. Howard N. helping with the hay. Mowed lawn, ate late supper, & went to bed early.

My comments: Well, well… I knew it was coming, and now it is here. Will be interesting to read in the Enterprise about the new Light Plant opening. Mom always talked about being one of the first people to work in the office there!

Lots of smoking, in those day. Interesting the angle she took on her three bosses!

Do you suppose the one Mr. Charles smoked looked like one of these?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
