75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 8, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 8, 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 Monday, May 8:

Birthday note: Julia Hicks

Nice day. A little cool. Did separator and went in to wash. Through at 11:00. Down town & did the shopping. Did my ironing. Bussy sprained his ankle yesterday & was home from school. Got 50 day-old Buff Rocks. Home & fixed them up, fixed picnic lunch. Burned brush down by gate. Had wieners, buns, potato salad, beet pickles, marshmallows, cup cakes & coffee. In house again at 10:00. Pete read paper & I wrote in books & then to bed.

My comments:

Picnic two days in a row… spring must have arrived… ;-)

50 more baby chicks… Dad apparently liked his chicken and noodles… see entry in a couple of day… here are some day-old Buff Rock chicks…  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
