75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 26, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 26, 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 Friday, May 26:

Late doing morning chores. Did usual work. Made noodles. Pete fixing fence so cows can't get in the oats. Ate chicken noodle dinner. Took Pete over on 80 to plow. Finished my dishes. Went in town to iron. Rained a little in pm. Over after Pete. Did the chores up early. Rained real hard about 7:30. Just what we needed. Really a blessing. Ate, Pete went out and cut off the burdocks in the yard. To bed early.

My comments:

How many burdocks have you cut? I did many, many in those early days... on the farm.



Families are Forever!  ;-)
