75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 12, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 12, 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, April 12:

Pete took the team to the other place. Up real early. Did up the work, scrubbed the separator house, and raked a little bit. Aunt Kate came about 2:00 and stayed 'till 5:00. Made a choc. cake, got supper. Mom and Dad here at 6:00. Ate, milked, did up the work and went to Bank Nite to see Mae West in "Every Day's a Holiday." Home at 11:30. Mom & Dad stayed here all nite.

My comments: Wow! Quite a day. Important to note "the separator house!"
Visit from Aunt Kate - Pete's Aunt (wife of his mother's brother, Harry!) - they likely owned that 80!.
Another chocolate cake. First Bank Nite since marriage.
Her parents stayed the night… varnish in their house was too much!  ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
