75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 3, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 3, 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 3:

Another nice day. Did usual morning work. Fixed fingernails. Got dinner. Ate, did dishes, cleaned up, went up to LVene's. Norma & Gertrude there. We made 36 Maybasket Nutcups for the luncheon. Home at 5:30. Folks came out. Another lamb born this morning. Folks came out & Dad, Buss & I planted 9 rows of spuds. Ate, folks left. Took our baths and went to bed.

My comments:

Another lamb born, planted spuds! And, made 36 Maybasket Nut Cups!

Did they look like these?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
