75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 25, 1939


75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 25, 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 Tuesday, July 25: 

Bussy had a blood test for his tonsils. Cleaned the house a little bit. Looked at new catalog & rested. Down & picked a few beans, tomatoes & cucumbers. Pete threshing at Bowman's. Folks came out at nite & stayed until the baby fed. Bathed & went to bed.

My comments:

Doctors seemed to like to "take out" the tonsils!

Glad she rested some…

Haven't shown cucumbers yet? Have you picked any yet this year?



Families are Forever!  ;-)
