75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Jan 8, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Jan 8, 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 Sunday, Jan 8:

Slept late. Merle here a minute in morning. Had fried chicken for dinner. Here alone. After dinner Pete up to Verle's to help Deppman load a cow & then down here after one. Went riding up past Ed's. In to town & got ice. Home. Made a berry pie & froze 2 quts. ice cream. Pete milked & then we were fixing out our expenses accounts when Ed & Elmer came. Played bridge & ate pie ala mode. They left at 1:00.
 
My comments: Assume Deppman had the truck to take two cows to whom they were sold.

Berry pie & ice cream sounds pretty good! ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
