75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 16, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 16, 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 16:

Didn't get up till late. Folks came out. Pete was up home all day working on tractor. Had fried chicken for dinner. Scrubbed & waxed kitchen floor. Edith, Helen, Lenore here till 6:30. Folks went down to Louise's. Ate supper. LVene, Verle, Arnold, Julia came & bro't ice cream & cherry pie. Don & Norma came. They all left early because it started to storm. Fed baby & went to bed.

My comments:

You can bring "ice cream & cherry pie" any time - or, just the cherry pie… I'll provide the ice cream!! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)


  1. My Nana gave me her old cookbooks , and althought the entries are not dated, I love reading what she wrote while cooking , spills and all !

  2. For sure! Very special! Thanks for sharing! ;-)
