75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 10, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 10, 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, April 10:

Up at 6:00. Folks & Leo & Ida came out at 12:00. Bussy going back with them. They left at 4:00. Pete put up the mail-box and then did up the chores early. I fixed sandwiches for supper and popped a kettle of corn. Listened to the radio, took baths and went to bed early.

My comments: Mail box was up for Monday delivery. Suppose they got any junk mail that first day?

I like the expression: "…popped a kettle of corn." Conjures up several images...



Families are Forever!  ;-)
