75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 5, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 5, 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 5:

Didn't get up till 7:30. Did dishes & separator. Pete took out insurance $1000 from Dennis Brannan. Doc Wolfe said Pete should have been a prize fighter and that he never saw such teeth. Left at 3:00. Did our shopping. Home & did the chores and went to bed early.

My comments: Not sure if that was life insurance or property insurance. Not the right time of year for crop insurance. Our family generally had great teeth… and she loved to brag about it… seems to have started early!

Haven't used a separator image in a while - this is a generic milk/cream separator, like she washed every day, morning and night. Very important process, of course! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
