75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 5, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 5, 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 5:

Warm but windy. Did up usual work. Pete got North field ready to plant. Had chick-noodles. Did dishes, scrubbed, Wallace's Farmer salesman here. Up home at 2:30. Pete got team & planter. Both home at 6:15. Otto & Stella Gehrig here. Pete & Ollie docked the 3 little lambs. Pete milked. *Folks came out and we planted a few more spuds. Ate late. Fixed our books and went to bed.

My comments:

"Pete got team & planter." Interesting, still using team for planter, but tractor for plowing and other… in a transition period. How about that?

Wanted to share masthead of Wallace's Farmer… so familiar! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
