75 Years Ago Today
May 16, 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, May 16:
Real warm day. Did dishes, separator, scrubbed, rested a bit. Ate dinner, took Pete to work. Home did dishes & went in home. The baby's things came. They're all just real nice. Home, went after Pete. Chored, getting supper when Max, Orrin, & Gary came. They bro't back the sheller. Left at 9:30. To bed.
We had an old hand sheller around the farm as I was growing up. Could it have been the same one? I looked a lot like this one.
Families are Forever! ;-)
