75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 20, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - May 20, 1938
 
 This entry is an irregular post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

From March 1 thru April 29, I posted every day, to cover the marriage and the early married life of Pete and Eileen (Kinnick) Smith, but decided to 'take a breather.'  Posts will be added, from time to time, as items of particular interest appear.
 

Here is the daily entry for Friday, May 20:

 Didn't get up very early. Pete up to the other place. Came home & did up the usual work. Planted 5 rows of beans, 1 peas, 1 beets and 20 rows onions. Went to town. Made out & sent order to M.W. Underwear, socks, dress material. Out to Lund's awhile. After Pete. Did chores, ate, went to bed early. LVene & Verle married at Carroll. Polly & Merle went with them.

My comments: Pete's sister LVene married Verle Thomas. They went to Carroll, much as Pete and Eileen had.

This image is from the Smith family history book LVene compiled with her sister Irene. LVene did not like to have her photo taken… so if she included this one, it must have met with her approval! ;-)


More planting in the garden. Pete had brought home the onion sets the prior day, from Smith's garden storage, I assume. The prior day, she had also subscribed to County Gentleman magazine, as well.



Families are Forever!  ;-)
