75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 6, 1938

75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 6, 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 Tuesday, Dec 6:

Did usual work in morning. Pete here for dinner. Vegetable soup. Made fresh rolls in pm. and got ready for club tonite. In town at 7:00. To Caswell's to Jr. Fed. Didn't have too much of a good time. Rice, whip. cream, crushed pineapple & coffee. Home at 12:00.
"Poochies' mamma."

My comments: Our "not quite 20" new farm housewife doesn't seem quite ready for the matronly role of small town club membership, yet… She did list the food… that never changes… ;-)

"Poochie" was the dog - not sure the reference to "mamma" in that context.

Pretty sure this photo, from nearly a year later, is actually "Poochie!"

Billie, Pete, Poochie, by car, at farm

Families are Forever!  ;-)
