75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 7, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
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!  ;-)
