75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 28, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 28, 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 Monday, March 28:
  6 eggs

Up early. Did separator & went in to town to wash at 8:30. Pete to Smith's to dinner. Started raining about Noon. Pete here when I got home. Got washing & ironing all done. Got chores and work done in pretty good time. Took baths and went to bed.

My comments:
Saw this great Separator image in the A Hundred Years Ago blog:

Source: Kimball’s Dairy Farmer Magazine (March 1, 1913)

The photo was a few years earlier, but the separator worked just like that when I was growing up in the 1940-50s... so I think it is pretty representative.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
