75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 6, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 6, 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 Saturday, May 6:

Did usual work. Up to Smith's after wire and planter plate. Bro't i down home. In to town and got Mom & Buzz. Cleaned bedroom before dinner. Made a cream pie. Had beefsteak. After dinner made an angel food cake, cleaned kerosene stove & set it up. Cleaned kitchen & dining room. Out watching chickens & pigs. Real tired. Ate supper, Pete shaved & we went in to town. Threatened to storm but it just sprinkled. Sat in front of the show until 11:00. Pete got the groceries & we came home.

My comments:

Very active day. Wonder about "…cleaned kerosene stove & set it up."
Notice she spelled "Buzz" for first time in a long time… has been using Buss or Bussy all the time…

Loved to see this image of the team and planters, with wire, if you notice! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
