75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 26, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 26, 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 Sunday,  Feb 26:

Bussy got us up at 7:30. Did usual work. Made a gallon of ice cream. Cleaned up & went in home to dinner. John, Jeannette, Gertrude & Everett were there. Played piano and talked in the p.m. Home at 5:00. Chored, ate. I made an angel food. Julia & Arnold came. Frosted the cake, played pitch and ate cake. They left at 12:30.

My comment: Notice she mentioned the young children first, this time. What is on her mind, do you suppose?

Sounds like a fun evening!
