75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 19, 1938

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 19, 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 Monday, Dec 19:

 In home at 10:00. Pete to Toots' cutting wood. Down town & mailed orders. Over to lite plant a minute.
Did the washing before dinner.
Louise & Rasmus, Annie & Karl were there for dinner. Down town & looked around in the afternoon. Had pigeon for supper. To bed early.

My comments: Notice that she still regularly refers to her parents' home, in town, as "home."

"Had pigeon for supper." Found this image, "pigeon-squab" in Chinese cooking section of Wikipedia…

Families are Forever!  ;-)
