75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 22, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 22, 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 Tuesday, March 22:

2 eggs

Up early. Pete up to Smith's to dinner. I scrubbed the kitchen and waxed it. LVene here awhile after school. I drove car out to the field after the cows.
[3 lines of shorthand]
In town at 8:00 to my shower at Priscillas. Got a lamp, fiesta, lunch cloth, cake cover, canister set, Kleinert's tops, baby booties. Pete asleep at the folks.
[2 more lines of shorthand]

My comments: I suspect the shorthand represented some frustrations. What do you think?
Nice that they had a shower for her. Nice gifts. What fiesta do you suppose?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
