75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 18, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 18, 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, April 18:

 Up late. Betty washing when I got there. Bill going home with Polly & Merle. Pete fixing gar end fence. I waited until pm to wash. Anderson's cleaned Pete's suit & hemmed my dress. Did the washing and went after Pete. Did up the work, took baths, got ready for the dance. Edith & Howard with us. Left at 9:30. Glen Geneva's orchestra. Had a keen time. Pete, Howard, Elmer.

My comments: She loved to go to the dance. Last three names, of course, are who she danced with… the most important thing!

This was an image when I looked for "1938 dancing to orchestra." Note outfits! ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
