75 Years Ago Today
May 19, 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, May 19:
Birthday notes: Barbara & Wallace
Took Pete up home after the team. Did usual work. Rested awhile & then scrubbed. Over after Pete. Ate, Pete took car. Did dishes, took a nap. He had me take him back to plant after he helped Sim Laurence shell corn for an hour. Home and made over my blue skirt. Pete home at 6:00. I weeded between the garden rows. Late with the chores. Ate supper & went to bed. I tried to do my book work but Pete was too sleepy.
Glad she is getting her rest. Happy that he is working so hard on the farm. That always made him feel good! ;-)
Suppose her garden looked anything like this one?? ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
