75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 8, 1938



75 Years Ago - Eileen's Diary - Dec 8, 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 Thursday, Dec 8:

Slept on studio couch all nite and until 8:30. Did separator, dishes, swept, took a bath, fixed my finger nails. Polly & Betty came. We got LVene, Margaret & Carrie & went to S.P.C. at Hazel Bolger's. Had nice time. The best lunch. Chicken salad was grand. Home at 4:30.

[She had written in "Noodles for supper." But, it was crossed out. Then, underlined this sentence:]
Put hot water bottle water on the noodles & we couldn't eat them.

Had sausage & spuds. Ate & went to bed.

My comments: Star Progressive Club. Again, first mention. She became an active member over many years, at some point. Hazel (my wife's grandmother, just for reference) was a special host, according to Mom, above! LVene was Pete's sister, of course. She was married to Verle Thomas. Margaret was his sister, Carrie was their mother. They were active in the Star Methodist Church.


Hazel Bolger, perhaps about that time


Families are Forever!  ;-)
