75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 5, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 5, 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 Sunday,  Feb 5:

 Pete up at 8:00. Me at 9:30. In to town. Had Dwight open the locker for me.  Got some pork chops. Got the folk's Sunday paper. Ate, did dishes and went riding. Almost got stuck in one place south of town. Home at 4:30. Ate, Pete milked. Folks home from Leo's at 7:00; they stopped in just a  minute. Pete finished the chores. We popped some "corn." We each read a story and went to bed at 10:00.

My comment: A fairly typical Sunday. Except, she got her cousin, Dwight Williams, to open the town meat locker, so she could get some pork chops!

I really don't think they looked like this, but it was hard to pass by this image!!  ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
