75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 21, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 21, 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 Tuesday, Mar 21:

Birthday note: Leo K.

Really a grand day. Pete finished hauling up the wood. Up the road after the calves. Finished the setter and put the hens in. Cleaned the house up a little bit. Ate, did dishes while Pete chored.

My comment:

Calves were out, again. Need some fence work, perhaps. Sounds like good weather to do it in, finally.

The "setter" now has hens in it… will get eggs in a couple of days…

Leo now lived out of town… so no party or celebration today. But, here he is, with car - may be a couple of years earlier, but don't think I've shared this image, recently! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
