75 Years Ago Today
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.
I can just feel the hot and dusty day in the field.
An old harrow...
