75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 3, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 3, 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, July 3:


Didn't sleep too well. Nursed at 6:00. Ate, nursed at 9:00. Had a keen all over batch. Wrote quite a few announcement cards. Rested, ate dinner, fed Billy. Rested & read. Aunt Lucille was here a little while. Washed, read, ate, fed the baby. Pete didn't get here  until 8:00. Stormed awful & he couldn't get the car started. Bro't Wilbur & Donald & took them & Aunt Lucille home. Ping has been here since Saturday night. He had a run away with team. Pete left about 9:00.

My comments:


Wilbur, Donald and Ping (Wilson, Jr.) all sons of Lucille (Kinnick) and Wilson Herron. The young men were first cousins of Eileen… near her in ages, as well.

Here is an early image of Lucille (mid-40s at time of visit, this is about that time, I think):



Families are Forever!  ;-)
