75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 17, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 17, 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 17 (St. Patrick's Day):

Up at 7:15. Had my hair fixed at 8:00. Did some shopping. Out to the place. Matt's were just leaving. Newspapers stuck on the floors. Unrolled rugs. Went in town after my b. room set. Ate dinner there. Worked until 6:00. Went to Carroll. Edith & Howard were our wedding attendants. Married by Rev. Cook at the Methodist Parsonage at exactly 8:00. Ate dinner at Carroll Cafe and then to Leo Daeges St. Patricks's day dance. Keen time. Everyone congratulating us. Home at 1:30. Our first night. Perfect.

My comments: "Perfect" works for me. Interesting to note what she saw as important on this wedding day… tight writing… never mentions Pete… obsessed with having her 'b. room set'… Edith and Howard with them. Married at Carroll parsonage. No photos that I know of… wasn't important to her, that day… much more on her mind.

Thanks, Mom! Glad it all worked out well!  ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
