75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 21, 1937


 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 21, 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 Saturday, August 21:
Cool. To town at nite. Pete took Helen home. Boys go tomorrow morning. Hate to have Pete leave.

Here is the long entry for Saturday, August 21:

Nice & cool. Really a grand day. Up at 9:30. Cleaned the upstairs good before dinner. Did dishes & cleaned downstairs. Mom canned pickles. Took a bath, went in to town with Leo & Buag (sic). Buss to show. I with Helen J. & then Pete. Te took Helen home. I hid in Lund's car. We brought Bussy home. Back to town. Got buns. Talked to Elmer. They'll be gone for a whole week. Will I ever miss them. He says he'll have as good a time as possible without [a shorthand squiggle!].

My comments: Haven't said yet where the boys are going for a whole week.

"Mom canned pickles."


Note Kerr jar, rather than Mason, in the photo... suppose there is a story there, as well.  ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
