75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Jan 20, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Jan 20, 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 Friday, Jan 20:

Up before 8:00. Did separator. Up home at 9:30. Up there for dinner. LVene there too but she had had dinner. Pete and Pop took 2 loads of pigs to Glidden. We 4 girls all washed our hair in pm & I waved them. In to town at 3:30. I sat on the street while Pete got a hair cut. Home and chores real early. Got to the Guthrie games before they started for a change. Boys lost 21-23 and the girl won. Down home talking until 11:00.

My comments: Overall, a very interesting, and somewhat unusual, day! ;-)

Pigs to market day ALWAYS an important day. Disposable income! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
