75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 18, 1937


 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 18, 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 Wednesday, August 18:

Rained again. Lil & Del here for supper. To town with Lunds. To "Lloyds of  London." With Pete. Did it rain. Wringing wet. In house at 1:00.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, August 18:

Rained again. And again we didn't get to wash. I just did what had to be done again. Read & slept all afternoon. Lil & Del here for supper. Leo's & Dad's birthday. I rode bike over to Lund's in pm & went in to town with them at nite. Helen & I to "Lloyds of London." Really good. With Pete afterwards. Did it ever rain! Out home in Pop's car. Grand time. Just wringing wet.  - - - - - - - In house about 1:00.

My comments: Well, well. Was Pete's Dad's (Pop) car a little bigger? A little more room? or what? ;-)

Notice how 'big deal' was made of birthday's, again - NOT!  ;-)

"Lloyd's of London" was a 1936 American drama film directed by Henry King and starring Tyrone Power, among others…
