75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Jan 14, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Jan 14, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date. She kept a diary from 1932 as a freshman in high school until she left us, too early, in 1999.
Now we are beginning 1939 - the year I was born, on July 1 - Bring it on! ;-)


Here is the daily entry for Saturday, Jan 14:

Pete got up early. I got up at 8:30. Did the chores and cleaned up. Max & Orrin came at 10:30 and we went to Carroll with them. Ate at the Carroll Cafe. Max did her shopping. I went to the Doctor at 2:30. Didn't get to see him until 3:15. Perfectly all right. Surely glad. Got Hot Dogs and came home. Kinda peeved cause Max & Orrin kept saying how late it was etc. Got all right again though. Made some sugar cookies for supper. Pete chored. Fixed account books. Looked at catalogs. To bed at 10:00.

My comments: Happy to see her Doctor visit went well!

See liked her catalogs!

Had to choose between Sugar Cookies and Hot Dogs...



Families are Forever!  ;-)
