75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 17, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 17, 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 Friday,  Feb 17:

 Up late. Made a burnt sugar cake. Fried chicken for Pete. Made deviled eggs. Took them, pickles & sandwiches to Vivian Rippey's to a Farm Bureau Officer's Meeting. Had a keen dinner. Talked about Achievement Day.
Down town a minute. Mom bought me a lace table cloth. Pete came and we got the groceries and came home. Ate and I did dishes while Pete chores. Moved the good bedroom set into north room. Worked at it 'til 11:00. Read the papers and went to bed.

My comment: Must have been an interesting meeting... ;-)
More good food… cake, chicken, deviled eggs, pickles…
Wonder about the lace table cloth? Nice, but… some occasion? Grandma liked them, sharing, perhaps! ;-)

Decided on burnt sugar cake. Never saw a slice this small at our house! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
