75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 28, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 28, 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 Friday, July 28:

Couldn't thresh in the am. Pete went in to town awhile. Had chicken dinner early & he went over to Bud's to thresh. Did dishes & went in to town, & washed & ironed. Home at 6:30. Ate, Ed Kult came. Made 2 qts of ice cream. Bathed & went to bed.

My comments:

Since nothing special, today, I'll catch up with that "airplane ride" that Buzzy took a few days earlier… I had this photo of a plane like he likely flew in...

This is a 1939 Stinson...


Families are Forever!  ;-)
