75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Jan 5, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Jan 5, 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 Thursday, Jan 5:

Pete up home after he chores. I did up my work, scrubbed the kitchen floor, made a caramel nut cake. Had tenderloin (fresh) for supper. Folks here at nite awhile. They left early & we went to bed.

My comments: Ah, fresh tenderloin - pork, I would assume! Yum! ;-)

Bet her "caramel nut cake" was yummy, as well! Suppose it looked like this - probably not, but who really know... Great walnuts on top... ;-)
 
 


Families are Forever!  ;-)
