75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 13, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 13, 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 Monday,  Mar 13:

Birthday note: Ida Marie

Up in good time. Did usual work. Helped Pete saw a pile of wood. Ate, did dishes and went up to Thomases. Walked up the lane. Decided to meet LVene up there and go with her. Home and in to town awhile. Made pinecor (sic), chores, ate & went up there at 7:00. 12 boys had stag party while we went to Julia's shower at Helen Bower's. Julia, Edith, LVene, Garnet & I in Thomases car. Made lunch for boys and came home at 2:00.

My comment: Julia was marrying Arnold Thomas… series of events were a little hard to follow in her diary entires here for a couple of days. She tried to be descriptive. Obviously had "no idea" we would be trying to relive her experiences, as well!

"Helped Pete saw a pile of wood."... did it look like this???  ;-)




Families are Forever!  ;-)
