75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 29, 1938


75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 29, 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 Friday, April 29:

 Real nice out. Pete plowed down here. Did up the usual work. In the pm. planted radishes and lettuce. Poochie ran off with the peas. Norma & her mother here awhile in p.m. At nite just did up the usual work & went to bed. In to town in the morning awhile.

My comments: Couple things here worthy of comment it seems. Confirms he was farming their new 'homeplace' along with 'the 80.' Continued to work in garden. "Poochie" the dog identified for first time. Is this same dog they had a couple of years later?
