75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 20, 1938

 
75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 20, 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 Tuesday, Dec 20:


 Pete to Toots' again so I went in home. Brought gifts for all the kids. Gave the folks a bookcase and picked out a rocker for us. Home & chores. ate & went to bed early.

My comments:  The phrase "all the kids" caught my attention. Doesn't seem there were many kids around to buy gifts for. I'd like to have seen her list! ;-)

Suppose their rocker looked like this one, from 1931??



Families are Forever!  ;-)
