75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 27, 1938

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 27, 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 27:

Quite cold again. Up late. Did chores. Did separator. Got dinner. Pete had the left over soup. Went in to town. Sent back bedroom slippers. Up home a minute. Got groceries. Fried ham for supper.
Let fires go out. LVene & Verle came over & we moved the two stoves around. Played checkers &  pitch. Verle & I beat every game.

My comments: Mom was a good card player, for sure. A competitor, as well!

Nice to see her spell it "checkers!"

How do you like your ham?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
