75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 18, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 18, 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 Sunday, June 18:

Didn't get up until 8:00. Either of us. Hottest day ever. Didn't feel like doing anything. Folks went to Lil's for dinner. We kids were alone all day. Finished reading "Tess" together after dinner on the cot. Pete worked in garden awhile & fixed screen for pantry window. He washed the car and we both waxed it. Really an awful storm came up. Lightening, hailed, rain, blew, Pete got the cows in & we ate before he milked. Folks stopped a minute and got washing. To bed early.

My comments:

"We kids were alone all day" !!!
"He washed the car and we both waxed it." What fun! ;-)

Can't you just smell and feel that storm??? I sure can! ;-)

Did it look like this Hail Cloud image from Wikipedia?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
