75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 18, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 18, 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,  Feb 18:

 Pete up at 6:00. Me at 8:00. Did usual morning work. Max, Orrin, Gary & Betty here a minute. They brought the saw back. Don W. here while they were. Pete had to go in to the bank to a Soil Conservation Meeting. Brought Mom & Bussy out with him.
I scrubbed bedroom before dinner. Helped Saw wood. Cleaned rest of the house. Scrubbed the kitchen. Pete chores really early. Ate tomato soup. Took baths and Bussy & Pete and went to Sectional Finals. Coon beat Gray 33-23. Really some game. Sat with LVene and Verle. Down to Boehlers. Ed Kult and Edith Thomas sat with us. Home at 11:00.

My comment: A busy day. Never said what her Mom did all day… interesting.

Obviously very important "who they sat with" at events! ;-)

More wood sawed, now that the saw was back…  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
