75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 1, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 1, 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.

Here is the daily entry for Wednesday,  Mar 1: [bold]

Birthday note: Ruth Bolger   [** My future mother-in-law, of course!! ;-)]

Up late. Did usual work.
Had chicken & noodles for dinner. Did dishes & cleaned the whole house. Outdoors watching Pete put on car fan & clock mirror. Ate & chores. Embroidered & listened to radio. Pete shaved & washed his head. Snow plow went by at 9:30. To bed at 10:00.

My comment: Curious about the car accessories… "clock mirror" ?? "car fan" -day after a blizzard??

What was she embroidering? A table cloth like this?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
