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

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 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 Wednesday, June 9:

Didn't get up very early. Pete up home putting on the cultivator & plowed Moylan 80 corn in pm. Jr. helped him. I went in town & ironed in pm & Jenny cut my hair. Car turned over by George's. Over after Pete. Home chored. Out with Pete in garden. He hoed 4 rows spuds. Bathed, shaved, went to bed.

My comments:

This photo is the cultivator on the tractor. This may be from a year earlier, of course. She is not eight months pregnant, and only use the cultivator in June or so… But, this is Pete with the cultivator on the tractor…  ;-)  ...and this is certainly what they looked like, then...  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
