75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 4, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 4, 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 Saturday,  Feb 4:

 Up at 9:30. Did dishes, separator, scrubbed & waxed the kitchen floor. Made a white cake. Jacobson here after oats. 2 loads. Pete got the wood saw. He was up home for dinner. Washed and set my hair. Had tomato soup for supper. Ed Kult came before Pete was through milking. Talked until 9:00. Did the rest of the chores. Were listening to Horace Heidt. Left the lamp and radian on until 3:00.

My comment:  Did the batteries run down? Sure would like to know what that "wood saw" looked like!!

Horace Heidt was very popular on the radio. I remember listening to him, as well.


Families are Forever!  ;-)
