75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - June 26, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
June 26, 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 26:

Birthday note: Mom (she thought it was her 51st; turned out, it was her 52nd)

Pete laying by North field. Did usual work & then canned 4 quarts of cherry sauce. Ate & went in town. Pete got soybean money. I stayed up home while he shopped. Home at 2:00. Pete to the field. I canned 4 more quarts of cherries. Cleanup up the kitchen. Chored, ate at 8:00. I heard "Mrs. Moonlight," (who didn't want to grow old) on the Lux Theater. Real good. Janet Gaynor. Pete read paper. Bathed and went to bed.

My comments:

Lots of good cherries preserved for later use!

Look at the images I found!






Janet Gaynor - 1931


[Note: Grandma Kinnick, perhaps when applying for Social Security, in the 50s or 60s, discovered her birth certificate information clearly said born in 1887, when she always said/believed it was 1888, in Denmark.]


Families are Forever!  ;-)
