75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 13, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 13, 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 Wednesday, April 13:


 Up at 5:30. Pete was all through milking when the folks got up. He disked over on the 80. Mom & Dad out here just as we were through eating. Left Mom here. The paint made her sick. Did up the work and slept until 5:00. Ate, did up the work. Folks here all nite again. Pete and I took baths and then went to bed about 10:00.

My comments: With weather good, getting to the field early was obviously a priority.
Her Mom and Dad went back to town, to their house, but the paint smell was still too much for Dorothy. Eileen got an afternoon rest, it appears!

This isn't Dad, but the team and disk almost surely looked like this:



Families are Forever!  ;-)
