75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 26, 1938

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 26, 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 Monday, Dec 26:

 Up late. Did the chores. Made pancakes for dinner. In town in morning & got groceries. Hung pictures. Cleaned the house. Really cold out. At nite Liz & Kenny, Edith & Howard here for oyster supper. Did dishes & then played checkers & ate angel-food pie. Pete & I played rummy after they left until 1:00.

My comments: Yes, she wrote "angel-food pie!"

Do you play rummy? Recently?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
