75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - April 30, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
April 30, 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 Sunday, April 30:

Pete up at 6:30. Had to shut up another pig so it made us a little late to church. Really a swell day. Down home & so we stayed to dinner. Home about 3:30. Pete built some fence. I did dishes, separator. Got supper. 10 more little pigs. Through with chores in good time so we went in to town. Rode around awhile, got popcorn. Sat in middle of street by Lyric. Got pint of ice cream. Home to bed at 9:30.

My comments:

Sounds like they had a pleasant, enjoyable evening after a busy day.

10 more little pigs... more money in the pocket in the future!! ;-)





Looks like these three were playing in the mud! ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
