75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 10, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 10, 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, April 10:

Did separator and went in town to wash. Pete discing (sic) in the oats. Got washing & ironing both done. Down town a minute and then home. Ate supper & I went out with him while he milked. Laid on straw pile and watched him. Separated. Pete read story & we ate our oranges and went to bed.

My comments:

Sweet scenes in the evening… laid on straw pile… watched him… (he) read story… we ate our oranges… went to bed. Note: she was very pregnant by this time, as well...  ;-)

Found this image of disking a field… tractor is a little newer… but this is what it looked like, for sure, with dust flying about! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
