75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 4, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - March 4, 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 Friday, March 3: 

Down to the plant in the morning. Out to the farm in the p.m. Still trying to get off some paper. Pete plastering. Home at 5:00. Cleaned up. Pete came in. Listened to Centerville beat Coon Rapids. Foggy, slick nite out. Home early.

My comments: Lots of work to do on the farm house before the move in in a couple of weeks. Have you tried pulling off old wall paper? No fun. Pete plastering… must be some wall unfinished, or being moved.

Girls basketball team lost this game at State Championship - Did you see the hometown paper?
