75 Years Ago Today
June 22, 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 Thursday, June 22:
Really a nice day. Pete went up home and picked another pail of cherries. Washed my hair and made a white cake. In home for dinner. Folks had their piano tuned. Pete got his hair cut. Mom & Buss came home with us & we canned 7 1/2 qts of cherries. Makes 15 1/2 quits. Pete cut weeds in pm. Chored early. Had tomato soup. Pete & I went to garden. Planted beans & peas & Pete did some raking. Bathed, Pete read paper. Ate orange & then to bed.
Contrast in weather day to day. Sounds pretty normal! More cherries, yummy! ;-)
Will the peas they planted look like these?
Families are Forever! ;-)
