75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 20, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 20, 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 Sunday, March 20:

Up at 7:30. Did dishes & separator. Cleaned the house & porches. Wrenched my knee. Pauline, Merle & Betty here in morning. Lil's & Dell and and the folks here to dinner. LVene, Irene & Betty here in pm. Edith, Howard, Erna & Pressy, too. Folks stayed to supper. Pete brought the cows so I had the separator to do after supper. Late when I did it. Max & Orrin here until 10:30. Washed & went to bed. had an awful time getting the cows to the barn.

My comments: Most a town girl, now living on a farm with responsibilities. Working hard at it. Cows arrived… now she has 'her own' separator to clean twice a day!

Many guests on this busy Sunday!



Families are Forever!  ;-)
