75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Jan 7, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Jan 7, 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 7:

Up in pretty good time. Leo Byering here to look at the jersey.
Pete over to B. Johnsons after the hogs. I scrubbed & waxes dining room floor & then we went into town & ate. Bussy & Mom came out with us. Painted some of the kitchen. Pete made new nests. Made supper, ate, took Mom & Bussy in. Got a chicken from the locker & came home. Played Old Sol awhile and then went to bed.

My comments: Busy work day for new farm wife.

"Pete made new nests" "Got a chicken…" Just too much for me. Thinking about chickens…

Had to pull this image out, from a few years later…  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
