75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 19, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 19, 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 Monday, June 19:

Really nice out. Rained a little in morning. Pete cleaned out the cow barn. I did usual work. Pete picked up stuff in back yard. Ate, did dishes, went in town awhile. Got groc, paid tel. bill etc. Went up home. Got a big pail of cherries. Home at 6:00. Chored, ate, planted some watermelon & sweet corn. Sat on back porch 'til 9:30.

My comments:

They seemed to enjoy a day of rest from farm work with the wet fields. ;-)

Trying to get my arms around "a big pail of cherries!"


NOTE: A couple days late, but this was in the Coon Rapids Enterprise[dated today] - Grandma Kinnick's sister, Louise, Mrs. Rasmus Nielsen, lived south of Coon and Bayard:

75 Years Ago
June 16, 1939


The Frohlich Grocery announces
Mrs. Rasmus Nielsen was winner
of the $25 set of heavy aluminum
given for the best story
on impressions on the new store.
In order to avoid partiality, the
Haley-Neeley Co. at Carroll, who
knew none of the contestants,
judged the papers.



Families are Forever!  ;-)
