75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 10, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 10, 1938

This entry is the daily post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

Starting March 1, a weekly comment on these daily entries appear on the Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories blog. Those weekly entries, on that blog, on each Friday of the week, will continue, with links to some of these daily entries.


Here is the daily entry for Thursday, March 10:

Down to the plant at 8:00. Mrs. Mornette was there. She is going to be the new help. She's really a flop. Made a deposit. Real busy. Out to the farm at Noon. Eddie Patrick papering. Back to work until 6:30. Listened to radio & went to bed early. Bussy & I went for a little walk after supper.

My comments: New help not appreciated, it appeared. Guess the money was coming in!

I didn't know Eddie Patrick, but this is what he would have looked like, at work!  ;-)


P.S. Had a great comment from Kinnick cousin, Ellen DeVilbiss, on Facebook yesterday: "Actually older homes had quite a lot of woodwork. This is the generic term for millwork of all kinds: baseboards & the quarter round or baseshoe, door frames, window frames, sills, etc, and then crown moulding, picture or plate rails, chair rails & wainscot, all those things must be painted before you hang the wallpaper so that paint doesn't get on the paper."

Thanks, Ellen... REALLY appreciate your insight... and all those words I would like to have used, but couldn't come up with them. ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
