75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 30, 1938

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 30, 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 30:

 Up quite late again. In to town to dinner. Pete got a haircut. Got groceries & came home early. Pete took saw up home & then chores. Ate before he milked. Good liver supper. Took baths. To West Bend ballgames. Girls lost & boys won. Afterwards over to Bayard to Hal Stewart dance. Keen time. Had every dance. Home at 2:00.

My comments: Coon Rapids (IA) High School Boys Basketball team kept winning.

"Good liver supper."[I'll bet, however, that they didn't have broccoli! ;-)]

Families are Forever!  ;-)
