75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 22, 1939


75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 22, 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 Saturday, April 22:

Real nice out only windy. Took cookies to food sale. Mom & Bussy came out with me. Let chickens out. Pete worked on tractor, cleaned out chicken house & plowed garden. Took team up home.
Mom had head ache at nite. Dad came for them. Had 9 more little pigs. Did dishes while Pete read a story. Worked on books, took baths & went to bed at 11:00.

My comments:

Another busy day on the farm… tractor, chicken house, garden, team, pigs…

A generic chicken house of the time...



Families are Forever!  ;-)
