75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 28, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 28, 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 Tuesday,  Feb 28:

Up late. Did usual work. Really lots of snow. Roads blocked. No school. Made a 3 layer gold cake. Good. Had fried chicken for dinner. Read & played piano in p.m. Ate, Pete chores while I did dishes. Read awhile and then went to bed early.

My comment: A major blizzard for sure!

I seemed to focus in on the "3 layer gold cake!" Surprise!! ;-)


YUM!! ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
