75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 1, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 1, 1938


This entry is a post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

From March 1 thru April 29, 1938, 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.'  Between April 29 and Auguts 29, posts were added, from time to time, as items of particular interest appeared.

Resuming daily posts with December 1, 1938:


Here is the daily entry for Thursday, Dec 1:

Pete up to Toot's & XXX? home all day. I ironed all pm. Scribbed separator room floor.
Pete just finished the chores when LVene & Verle came
Brought 2 bu. walnuts.
Played cards 'till 12:00.

Lillian's boy Dennis Kinnick [Ford] born at St. Anthony's at 7:15.

My comments: Welcome to the world, Dennis!
Got 2 bu. walnuts - played cards until midnight… what more could one ask?

Youthful photo of Dennis and big sister Roberta:
