75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 21, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 21, 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 21:

Up at 8:00. Didn't feel like doing much. Rained so Pete was here around the house. Read the new story. Ate a cold dinner. Read some more, did dishes. Pete finished hauling old car frame away & made another pig trough. He fixed his scythe & mowed a few weeds. Clouded up so he got the cows & milked real early. Rained real good. Had a little stomach trouble so we had potato soup for supper. Laid in on cot & read until 9:00. To bed.

My comments:

Interesting set of 'rainy day' activities.

Scythe has been used for many, many years!! ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
