75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - May 9, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
May 9, 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 Tuesday, May 9:

Up in good time. Max here from 9:00 to 10:00. Pete planting. Ate dinner, did dishes, up home a minute, over to LVene's, in to town & got plow lathes. Betty, Polly, LVene here to get their hair fixes. Max, Gary, Norma here too. Had to get a setting hen from Norma. Out to chicken house when Edith Lund & Harold Johnson came. Harold milked 2 cows. Ate, took baths & went to bed.

My comments:

Lots of folks in and out during the day…

Harold milked 2 cows… with Pete?? I assume…

Needed one more setting hen??? Too many eggs? Just got new chicks, not eggs. ???

Families are Forever!  ;-)
