75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 13, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 13, 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.

 [August 1, 1937, at Ledges]

Here is the short entry for Friday, August 13:

Posted. Went to Carroll in P.M. Sheep shearer at home for supper. Took shower & went to bed early.

Here is the long entry for Friday, August 13:

Posted in the ledger all A.M. Pretty warm out. Man here sheering sheep. Chicken for dinner. Mr. Charles said I could have the afternoon off, so I went to Carroll, didn't tell anyone - and no one knows about it yet. Got my brown linen dress, hose & cosmetics. Home at 5:00. Sheep shearer here for supper again. Late with the dishes. Took shower, listened to First Niter & went to bed early.

My comments: Well, well. Aren't we acting independent - and still eighteen years old.

This confirms they had sheep, doesn't it. Think we had sheep mentioned once before. This is shearing time…

[There were some KINNICK relatives in Montana who were professional sheep shearers… I wonder if they knew about them… I doubt it, actually]

Families are Forever!  ;-)
