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



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 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 Thursday, April 13:

I didn't get up until 8:00. In to town at 9:30. Pete got board for brooder floor. Had 5 little chickens hatch. Finished floor at 2:30. I scrubbed it out in lye water. Read awhile. Pete didn't come in from harrowing until nearly 7:00. Have 11 little chicks tonight. Put them over in the brooder house. Late with chores. Ate tomato soup. Pete took a bath and we went to bed at 10:30.

My comments:

Eggs hatching nicely. Brooder house fixed so chicks could be kept there. What fun! ;-)

Five chicks, right? ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
