75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Feb 9, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Feb 9, 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 Thursday,  Feb 9:

 Pete up at  7:30. Me at 8:30. Did the separator and went in to town. LVene came to have her hair set while we were gone. Home at 11:00. Snowing & sleeting. Ate dinner. Drove up to LVene's. Told her I wasn't going to club. I think she's kinda mad.
Over home but they were to Aunt Lena's. Just laid & read all afternoon. In to town at 6:00 and got a rental battery. Ate, did dishes while Pete milked.

My comment: Not very thing is positive, here, all the time. ;-)

I've found the cold and bad weather has a lot to do with that, as well!! ;-)

Lena was Pop's sister - married to Burt Brown, lived on farm over north of Scranton. Here is a photo of them, about this time - and of her, at a younger age. ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
