75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 20, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 20, 1939


This entry is a post from the diary of my mother, twenty year old Eileen KINNICK SMITH, 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 20:

Didn't get up very early. Couldn't thresh. Pete up home after beans to take in to sell & then we went in town to dinner. Looked at washing machines. Had ice cream at new place. Mom kept Billy. Home & chores early. Toots operated on at Jefferson. Up home at nite. Helped Junior wipe dishes. Over to Max & Orrin's a minute to tell them about threshing. In town after ice & home at 9:30. Right to bed.

My comments:

"Mom kept Billy." - Wow… moving along! ;-)

"Looked at washing machines." Suppose they looked at one like this?



Families are Forever!  ;-)
