75 Years Ago Today
Feb 24, 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.
Here is the daily entry for Friday, Feb 24:
Up at 8:15. Cleaned b. room & d. room. Did usual work. Scrubbed the kitchen floor. Ate, did dishes, cleaned up. Over after Norma. In to Mrs. Wallingford's to practice for F. B. Shopped. Time gear in car broke. Pete took it to Cabelka's. Didn't get it till 5:00. Got groceries, meat, and home. Ate, late with the chores. Did dishes while Pete milked. To bed early.
My comment: I don't recognize the Wallingford name. Do you?
Came across this photo of Pete with Don and Norma Williams, after they lived in Mesa, Arizona, about 20 years after these entries...
Don and Norma Williams, Pete Smith
Families are Forever! ;-)
