75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 2, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 2, 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 2:

 Nice but a little cooler. Did usual work. In to town and ironed until Noon. Home, got dinner, Pete plowing. Ate, went over to Johnson's after 2 calves. Did dishes, scrubbed kitchen, read the paper. Planted some more garden until 5:00. Embroidered a little while. Made choc. cookies while Pete milked. Ate, Pete read paper, went to bed early.

My comments:

Library of Congress photo image of 1939 tractor plowing… how about that?! Looks pretty accurate, but the field in the image is likely quite a bit bigger than Dad was working on! ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
