75 Years Ago Today
July 17, 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 17:
Up early. Pete went in town & got a haircut & brought the washing home. Ate dinner & then Pete went out & picked a pail of beans. We snapped them & put them on. At night we took or baths while they finished. Sat on porch awhile but the bugs were so bad that we finally came in the house & laid on floor.
Took beans off, fed the baby and went to bed. Don & Norma here about 4:00. Bro't the baby a little kimono.
Well… "the baby"… tired of him already… or, just hot? ;-)
Canning beans…. remember that well, in the 50s as well!
Families are Forever! ;-)
