75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 12, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 12, 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 Monday, Dec 12:

 Pete got up early & we were in town by 9:30. Both of us did washing. I got dinner. Slept part of the afternoon. Got my ironing done. Home at 5:30. Chored. Just eating when Max & Orrin & Gary came. Used the new poacher Aunt Gertrude gave me. Really nice. Popped corn while Pete & Orrin went in to town & got some cards. Played bridge till 12:00.

[She had written "Dorothy Thomas" beside the date. That means it was her birthday - just two days before her own (Eileen's twentieth) - they were same age - Ruth (Thomas) Bolger's younger sister.]

My comments: Gotta have new cards to play bridge - apparently! ;-)

This photo is for a few weeks forward, but, on the right are Orrin, Max, Mom, Dad and Gary (being held by his grandfather Smith) at this point it time! Neat - and so young! ;-) Love it! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
