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



75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 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 Tuesday, June 6:

Rainy when we got up. Went after cows with Pete. He milked. Did usual work. Pete up home till 10:00. In home. Picked berries and ate there. Home, cleaned up and went to Carroll. Pete went to Dr. with me. Everything OK. Thinks it's a boy. Only 2 wks. maybe. Head is down already. Shopped awhile. Got pt. ice cream. Down by hospital. Home. Pete went to Dr. He's OK too. Home & did usual work. Tired. Ate & went to bed.

My comments:

"Everything OK. Thinks it's a boy. Only 2 wks. maybe. Head is down already." Always watching for reports on THE BABY! Ok, that is me… amazing!

Good to hear Dr. say Dad is ok, as well. He still hurts, though, I'm sure.

Grandma Kinnick always had Raspberries, so assuming that is what they picked! Look good! ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
