75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Mar 23, 1939




75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Mar 23, 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 Thursday, Mar 23:

 Pete up at 6:00. Did usual work. Pete had to fix a flat. Merle here after a chain. Took Pete up home. Washed, set my hair, scrubbed, went in to town to dinner. Slept for 2 hrs. after dinner. Out to Maude's and got 5 dozen eggs to set. Up after Pete. Home at 6:00. Listened to radio and went to bed early.

My comment:

Assume the 5 dozen eggs were fertilized eggs… What do you think?

Did they look like this?  ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
