75 Years Ago Today
July 2, 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 Sunday, July 2:
Really slept keen. They woke me at 6:00. Nursed baby again. He really is nice. [!!!!!!]
Washed up. Slept awhile again. ate breakfast at 7:30. Slept again. Put on clean top and bedding. Had a keen dinner. Rested after the baby nursed. Pete, the folks, Leo, Ida, Karen & lots of others here. Had a swell time. Ila Jean came after hours for awhile after the others had all left. Rested, ate, fed the baby at 6:00. Rested & read until Pete came. Helen, Josephine & kinds here a minute too.
Think she is enjoying being "looked after" - what do you think?! ;-)
Lots of visitors… and it gets moreso, in coming days, at hospital… then at home… !!
Ila Jean Kinnick was Mom's first cousin, two months older… we'll be seeing her a lot in coming days, so here is her photo… assume this is high school graduation, three years earlier. ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
