75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 25, 1938




75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 25, 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 25:

 Up at 5:00. To town at 7:00. Folks weren't up yet. Washed. Ate, ironed. Rained. Pete came at 7:00 and we ate before we went home. Went out to the barn & watched Pete milk. Rite to bed.

My comments: Very early starts, again this week! Seemed important to her that she watched him milk… was that the only day?!

Two groceries store ads on this page are fascinating to examine and compare.
Community news in the fine print is also very interesting.
Star Progressive club meeting caught my attention: Miss Rhoda Wilson gave an Easter poem by by Margaret Wilson. Mr. E.M. Wheeler presented the subject "Law Enforcement Concerning Marijuana."
Under Locals: Fred Textor is driving a new Plymouth. ... Albert Carpenter is driving a 1938 V-8. What did you see that caught your attention?


Families are Forever!  ;-)
