75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 24, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 24, 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 24:

Up at 6:30. Folks here at 8:30 for breakfast. They helped with the work & then left. I stayed in the house & worked & Pete worked on the lawn. He went over to the other place awhile in p.m. I painted 2 of the separator house windows & scrubbed those floors. To bed as soon as Pete got thru 'separating.'

My comments: Can you imagine what the 'separator house' looked like? I can…  ;-)
