75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 11, 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, 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.' Resuming with Dec 1, 1938...
Here is the daily entry for Sunday, Dec 11:
Up kinda late. Chored & got ready to go to LVenes for dinner. Max, Orrin, Merle, Polly, Arnold, Julia, Lvene, Verle, Don, Norma there. Chicken & biscuits were really good. Bavarian cream. Home at 4:00. Mom & Bussy here to supper. Dad took Cantata to Carroll. [that last sentence underlined] Buzz & Pete & I to Shirley Temple in "Little Miss Broadway."
My comments: An interesting six couple dinner. Life-long neighborhood friends, for sure, as well as some siblings. Neat!
Fascinated she spelled Bussy in one sentence and Buzz in the next! Is a change coming??
In the Shirley Temple movie, among other familiar names, Jimmy Durante played Jimmy Clayton, a bandleader…
Families are Forever! ;-)
