75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 22, 1938



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 22, 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 Thursday, Dec 22:

Pete here in am. Went in to the folks for dinner.
Mom busy getting ready to go to Leos'. Did dishes & went down town & got the groceries. Home & chaired & went to bed early.

My comments: Good time to share this photo from earlier in the year, reminds me of ages of everyone in 1938. This was taken about six weeks before Mom and Dad were married. Note how young Buzz still was, here in 1938. About 10. Easy to forget. Leo and Ida, on left, of course. Pete looked pretty snazzy in his hat, back there, too!
