75 Years Ago Today
June 14, 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 14:
Rainy. Dad bro't Buss out & took the washing in. Nearly finished cot cover before dinner. Buss helped. Pete reading "Tess." Rain made him quit plowing corn. He plowed after dinner. I got ready to go to club but no one came so I stayed home & finished cover. Made white cake. Got supper. In town. Saw Max & Orrin. Got groc, meat, came home & went to bed.
Seems that now when she says "plowing" see actually means "cultivating" - as in "plowing corn."
Pete reading "Tess" - a very old book. In 1979 it was made into a Romance Film by Roman Polanski… "an adaptation of Thomas Hardy's 1891 novel "Tess of the d'Urbervilles." A classic.
Here is a poster from the movie release:
