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


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 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 Thursday, June 8:


Pop & Junior came down in morning. Jr. finished planting the beans and Pete harrowed them in. In town & picked strawberries & peas. Pop, Jr, & Pete her for dinner. Had creamed new potatoes & peas. LVene & Verle came & stayed till 2:00. Did dishes. Pete finished harrowing at 4:00 & we went out in garden & planted cucumbers & a few more spuds. Chored. Eating when LVene, Verle, Arnold, Julia came. Sat on floor in dark and talked. Elmer & Don came. All left at 11:00. Right to bed.

My comments:

Nice that Dad got help finishing planting. Don't imagine he was real anxious to be around that horse again, soon. Why did EVERYONE stop by? Had they heard he was hurt??

"…creamed new potatoes & peas" sure sounded good!!



Families are Forever!  ;-)
