75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 7, 1937


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 7, 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 Wednesday, July 7:

Hot. Ironed. Listened to All Star Ball Game. Went swimming. Up town with Helen. Bussy with us. Saw Pete drive thru street.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, July 7:

Hot again. Did up the work & ironed the rest of the day. Really a big one. Listened to All Star Ball Game. Got supper, did dishes, & went swimming. Up town with Helen awhile. Bussy with us. Just saw Pete drive thru' the streets. Disappointed that I didn't get to see him. It's really grand to love someone like I do him.


My comments: Love that last sentence! Wow!  ;-)

Appears they are going swimming in town pool, from mention the last few days.

Oh, my, look at the roster of the 1937 Major League Baseball All-Star Game!

From left to right: Lou Gehrig, Joe Cronin, Bill Dickey, Joe DiMaggio, Charlie Gehringer, Jimmie Foxx, and Hank Greenberg. All seven would eventually be elected to the Hall of Fame.


Families are Forever!  ;-)
