75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 20, 1939


75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 20, 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 Saturday, May 20:

Got work done up early. In after Mom & Buss. Cleaned bedroom before dinner. Over after Pete. Ate dinner. Stayed over on 80 till nearly 2:00. Waited for horses to eat & drink. Read the paper over there. Home & finished cleaning rest of house. Picked a bouquet of yellow roses. Made ice cream. Folks here & Grant came. Talked till 10:30 & then Pete & I in town. Got a shirt for Pop. Home at 12:30. Really tired.
