75 Years Ago Today
Feb 7, 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 Tuesday, Feb 7:
Pete up at 8:00. Me at 9:00. Did separator. Ate dinner, did dishes. LVene & Verle came after a load of corn. Pete had Verle help him saw a pile of wood. They stayed until 4:00. Took the cream in to town. Signed the note for $600.00. Home at 6:00. Ate tomato soup and Pete milked. Fixed our commode drawer into a file. We took baths, ate our oranges, and went to bed at 10:00.
My comment: Appears they had saved the other $600.00. Interesting, private, insights. Thanks, Mom! ;-) Wish I had a photo of Pete and Verle sawing a pile of wood.
Tomato soup is not glamorous, but tastes great on a winter evening.
Families are Forever! ;-)
