75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 23, 1938



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 23, 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 Friday, Dec 23:


[Tom Wolfe birthday noted]

Pete up home in morning. After dinner Pete & Pop & I went in to town. Lil & baby at the folks. Packages came from Sears & Monky Ward (sic).
Pete took Pop up home. Late with chores. Just stayed home at nite.

My comments: Good time to share a photo of Pop - Pete's Dad. There weren't that many. This was taken about this time (1938). He'd have been 69.


Families are Forever!  ;-)
