75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 7, 1937

 75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - August 7, 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 7:

Sultry. Went to town after supper. Pete till 11:00 getting hair cut. home about 12:00. Something wrong.

Here is the long entry for Saturday, August 7:

Real close, damp & sultry after the rain. Busy all day. Quit early. Did shopping. Washed hair, cleansed up & came to town with Leo  & Buzzy. Took Pete till 11:00 to get his hair cut. I took Buzz home in his car. Irene with Merle & Pauline. We kids home about 12:00. Back seat full of groceries. Something wrong.

My comments: Have no idea what "Something wrong." means or refers to…  ;-)

First time I can recall Eileen mentioning Pete's oldest sister, Irene, in her diary. She was a school teacher out of high school; then worked in bank and insurance agency. Not sure exactly what she was doing in 1937. Probably still teaching at one room country schools.

I believe this is Irene's High School graduation photo... from her own scrapbook [Thanks to cousin, Becki!]

Families are Forever!  ;-)
