75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 11, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 11, 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, April 11:

 Pete didn't get up very early. Really is cold out. Pete sawed a pile of wood in morning.
I did up usual work. Pete disced (sic) after dinner. Merle brought Betty down for the afternoon. I curled her hair. Cleaned out cabinet drawers. Pete chores, ate potato soup, shaved, bathed, & went to bed.

My comments:

Potato soup sounds good for a cold day in April.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
