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



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 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 Tuesday,  Feb 14:

 Up late. Did the usual work. After dinner Peer [Yes, that is what it says! Could be Pelt!] came.
I pushed Pete in the Ford with the Chevy. In to town. Cableka [excellent, very special, mechanic in town… still there when I was a teen…] saw rite away what it was. Some little think - 10 cents. [Very typical response… amazing, for sure!]
Up home a minute. Pete got a hair cut. Took Pop's car up home. Home & chores. Ate, shaved, bathed and went in to Glidden - Coon ball games. Down home a minute. Home at 10:30.

My comment: No mention of any Valentine's Day recognition... Not part of their lives, apparently. Not too surprised at that! ;-)

Cars are great when they work. Frustration when they don't. Hope it is fixed! ;-)

Did that engine look like this?



Families are Forever!  ;-)
