75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 22, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 22, 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 - A doctor check up, today!  ;-)


Here is the daily entry for Wednesday,  Feb 22:

 Birthday note: Helen B.

Up at 8:30. Decided to go to Carroll. Had chicken & noodles. Folks here to dinner. Left for Carroll at 1:30 in folks' car. Dad & I to Annenberg's. Dad had his eyes fixed for glasses. I'm just keen only gaining too much. Shopped a little bit. Dad went and saw Art Minnich. Didn't get home until nearly 7:00. Pete chores & then we ate. Read paper, looked at catalogs and went to bed at 10:30. Really was tired.

My comment: Walter Annenberg was her baby doctor, of course. Good to hear things went well. Now sure about "Dad had his eyes fixed for glasses." Hope it was just an exam to select proper lenses… ;-)

Art Minnich was an attorney.

More catalog reading. Do you suppose they ever  looked as houses? Hard to imagine these were actually in the catalogs, for sale. But, actually very popular, I understand.



Families are Forever!  ;-)
