75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 24, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 24, 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 Wednesday, May 24:

Pete plowing on 80. Real hot all day. Did usual morning work. Scrubbed kitchen in am. Ate, did dishes, swept dining room, dusted, picked 2 bouquets of yellow roses. Embroidered on pillow cases. Merle came for the trailer. Pete home at 5:30. Did chores, ate, bathed. Were going for a ride, but it was so hot & Pete was tired so we listened to District Attorney and went to bed.

My comments:

Long day in the field, on the farm, for Pete.

Do you remember Mr. District Attorney on the radio? Summary said the secretary was a key figure!
It ran from April 1939 to June of 1952. I do remember of it, actually…

Families are Forever!  ;-)
