75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 26, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 26, 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 26:


Up at 5:30. Did separator & got breakfast. Rainy. Pete home all morning. Plowed in the p.m. I set out strawberries in the p.m. Pete went out and helped awhile after supper. I did dishes while. Pete milked. Took baths & went to bed.

My comments: Have you planted strawberries? I did a bunch in Tucson… had kind of forgotten about that… did they look like this?
