75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 3, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 3, 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, June 3:

Didn't get up very early. Took Pete over to 80 to harrow in the beans. Did separator & went to Carroll to see about a cot. Ended up by getting one at Glidden. Home at 3:00. Pete worried. Cleaned the house. Pete chores early. Ate, bathed & shaved & we went in to town.
Sat down by Goodrich's awhile & then in middle in front of Garst's. Got groceries etc & came home at 12:00.

My comments:

Not sure about "cot" - and, wondered about "Pete worried"

Here is a WWII era cot… or, did "cot" mean a baby bed???

Families are Forever!  ;-)
