75 Years Ago Today
June 24, 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 Saturday, June 24:
A nice day. Pete started to lay north field of corn by. Did usual work. Made a chocolate cake. Had peas & carrots from the garden for dinner. Cleaned whole house. Scrubbed & waxed kitchen floor. Chored early. Ate, took baths, shaved, went to town. Parked in middle in front of Textor's. Had lots to talk to. Pete got the groceries. Home at 12:10.
Any comments on the phrase "to lay north field of corn by?" I always thought this was a strange combination of words - out on the farm!
"Parked in middle in front of Textor's. Had lots to talk to."... brings back very specific memories!! ;-)
I chose to feature the fresh peas and carrots from the garden.Yum, fresh vegetables!! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
