75 Years Ago Today
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.
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! ;-)
