75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 18, 1938


75 Years Ago
Eileen's Diary
Dec 18, 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.'  Resumed with Dec 1, 1938...


Here is the daily entry for Sunday, Dec 18:

[Mrs. Lund - noted as being her birthday]

Up in good time. Picked out walnuts and made a nut cake. Fried chicken. Folks came out for dinner.
Played chekkers (sic) in pm. Pete made the wood box and fixed fence. Made nut fudge. Real good. Played chekkers until the folds went home. Made out an order for gifts while Pete took a bath.

My comments: My word processing software does want to spell chekkers like Mom did! She was normally so good at spelling and English - fascinating to see some specific short-comings, from time to time. We do all have them! ;-)

Walnuts played a big role in this day, so why not a walnut meat image… ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
