75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 1, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 1, 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, June 1:

 Pete up at 5:45. Me at 6:15. Did separator. Took Pete up after team. Polly & LVene here again & we nearly finished cleaning. Real tired at nite. Threatened to rain. Folks came after milk while we were eating supper. Wrote in books. Roberta had her tonsils out this morning. Pete shared and we went to bed.

My comments:

"Wrote in books." Here is what she actually wrote. H.E. is household expense. Notice paint, and turpentine, and wax, in addition to groceries. On 28th, the day the went to Springbook park and the a movie at night: H.E. (show, swim etc) - 1.42…. how about that?? ;-)
Looking ahead to June 3, First State Bank - Notes Payable - 50.00. Then on June 6, Dr. bill - for Eileen - 1.00 Health care costs have gone up a bit, in 75 years! ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
