75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 8, 1937


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - July 8, 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 8:
Hot. Made a cake. Wrote letters & in diary. Leo & Elmer here making hay. Fixed ade & cake for them. Listened to radio at nite & went to bed early.

Here is the long entry for Thursday, July 8:

Hot again. Did dishes etc. & made a cake. Did dishes & wrote letters & wrote in Diary.

"What is a man, If his chief good & market of his time Be but to sleep and feed? A beast, no more."

Leo & Elmer here making hay. Fixed lemonade and cake for them. Listened to radio programs & went to bed early.

My comments: Lemonade and cake a very common 'lunch' for the farm women to bring 'to the field' for men making hay. I was beneficiary often during high school. Make a lot of hay! Always a good excuse to stop and sit in the shade for awhile!

Her cake probably didn't look like this, but I could not pass up this photo!  ;-)
