75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 23, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 23, 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 23:


 Cloudy in morning. An awful wind and really hot. Pete finished harrowing in corn in morning. Ate, took Pete to work. Did dishes, read & slept and hour. To town at 4:00. Got ice. Buzzy came home with me. Over after Pete plowing soy bean ground. Home, chores, folks came out. Made ice cream. Pete shaved, we bathed and went to bed.

My comments:

I can just feel the hot and dusty day in the field.

An old harrow...


Families are Forever!  ;-)
