75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 16, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 16, 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,  Feb 16:

 Up in pretty good time. Snowing hard but not very cold. Did usual work. Was rolling noodles when LVene came. I set her hair. Her car froze up and Pete dad to thaw it out. She didn't leave until after 12:00. Had chicken & noodles for dinner.
Pete sawed a little wood. Chored early. Ate. Went in to Sectional GIrls. Gray beat Bayard; Coon beat Viola. Car battery down. Had to melt some snow. Tommy pushed us to get it started. Home at 11:00.

My comment: Cars and cold weather were a problem for them all, of course. Seems everyone was helpful, when needed. Nice to hear. Seemed the norm. Neat!

Chicken & noodles sounds good. Looks good! Yum!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
