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


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 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 Friday, April 21:

 Pete worked on the tractor all day. Windy but not very cold. Mr. Cooly here awhile in pm. Made choc. cookies for food sale tomorrow. In to town a minute with Pete after new bearing. Ate supper, took baths & went to bed early.

My comments:

Cooley was Methodist Minister, as I recall.

This is supposed to be the tractor Dad had in 1939... a Regular, I believe. Was it the same one he still had 10 years later, as a utility tractor - that I learned, with rubber tires??? ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
