75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 9, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - April 9, 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 Saturday, April 9: 

 Up at 7:30. Did dishes & separator, straightened up the house, ate a lunch and we went in to town. Up home a minute. Got groceries. Came home. Pete up to his folks with milk. Went back in to town after butter. Leo & Ida there so we ate supper in there with them. Home to chore. Quite late. Did separator, made a cake, and went to bed.

My comments: Must have warmed up. No mention of the snow. They only lived just a couple of miles from town, so easy and quick to go in and out.

Here is a map… their house was at the red 4 - to the right of the east edge of town, a mile or so north. Pete's Dad's place is a mile and a half north, and a little over a mile east (a red 1 circled). I suspect the "other 80" was within a mile, on one of the "Preston" locations. This is a 1935 map.
