75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 4, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 4, 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 Thursday, May 4:

Threatened to rain all day but it didn't. Did morning work and went in to town. Home, got dinner, are, did dishes, embroidered awhile and then set out cabbage & tomato plants. Pete finished plowing north of house at 6:30. Did chores, had pancakes for supper. Pete read the paper & we went to bed.

My comments:

"Threatened to rain…" comment made me think of the difference in our knowledge and understanding of the weather… now we look at the radar, and pretty well know if it will rain, or not. They didn't have that, for sure!! ;-)

Have you set out tomato plants??

Families are Forever!  ;-)
