75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 2, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 2, 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 2:

Birthday note: Grant Ballard [39 - born in 1900]

Pete up at 7:30. Me at 8:30. Did separator & scrubbed. Ate dinner at 12:00. Did dishes. LVene came down & took us up  home. Pete & Pop took the Chevy to town. Polly, Betty, LVene & I came down here. Waved Betty's & LVene's hair. FInished the bench. Folks left at 4:30. Had potato soup for supper. Did dishes & made out the books. Took baths and then played 2 games of rummey. (sic) [Should be rummy!] Of course, Pete beat. Went to bed early.

My comment:  Dad didn't know about letting the "little woman" win! ;-)

Potato soup - I think Mom's would have looked like this... great for a cold evening! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
