75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 6, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 6, 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, July 6:

 Really hot. Awake at 5:30. Nursed baby, had bath. Had fan on all day long. Read until dinner. Fed the baby, ate, rested awhile. Rita Kult, Mrs. Rafferty & Dick here in pm. Read, rested, ate supper. Fed Billy, read until Pete came at 7:45. Stormed & he stayed until baby fed. Left about 9:30. Didn't sleep very well. Too much storm.

My comments:

I would think a storm would be the least of her concerns? Must have really been bad?!?!?

First of several images from my Baby Book - here is the cover:

Families are Forever!  ;-)
