75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 19, 1937


 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 19, 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 Thursday, August 19:

Washed. Helen came in P.M. Went over to Lunds & to Lenore's. Planned picnic. Ate & rode bike. Didn't feel very good.

Here is the long entry for Thursday, August 19:

Finally got to wash. Took nearly all morning. Got 2 gallons of corn ready to can, & made jell. Helen B. came out about 1:30. I had to keep right on working. Did dishes, cleaned the house & then we went over to Lunds & into Lenore's. Planned our picnic. Boys will be gone. Home at 4:30. Ate & rode Bussy's bike. Read in bed. Didn't feel very good at nite.

My comments: I'll bet she ate some of that corn she was canning…  ;-)
