75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - September 15, 1937

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - September 15, 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.

Here is the short entry for Wednesday, September 15:

Took things home. Cold. Pete came. Watched show at Park. Hunting for twine. Home early.

Here is the long entry for Wednesday, September 15:

Ate breakfast at Mrs. Wever's. Out home to dinner and supper. Took all my things home. Really cold at nite. Washed by hair. Ate late. Pete came at 8:00. Watched picture show at Park. Got groceries, hunted all over for twine. Home early.

My comments: I have to wonder what kind of twine they were looking for and what it was to be used for. When I was growing up on the farm, twine was used in the hay baler, but I don't think that would have been the use that far back. Must have had something to do with harvesting, however. Any ideas?  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
