75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 31, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 31, 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 31:

Did up morning work. LVene & Polly came & we gave pantry a first coat, kitchen 1st coat, painted white bed & box, living room floor. Washed living room & bedroom woodwork. Girls left at 5:00. Pretty tired. Fed my chicks. Pete came at 6:00. Chored. Didn't have much supper. Took baths & went in town. Drank Pepsi-Colas at the folks. Sat on porch awhile. Down town shopping. To bed at 11:30.

My comments:

Does this sound like a Norman Rockwell painting, or what? "…drank Pepsi-Colas… sat on porch awhile…" Pepsi was pretty proud of 39 years. Not sure how Grandpa Kinnick would have had Pepsi-Colas - pretty extravagant for him. Something special must have been going on!! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
