75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - July 31, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
July 31, 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 Monday, July 31:

Took Pete up home. They threshed flax at Vonnahme's. I had an end curl from Jennie. Up home for dinner. Karen & Billy both there. Down town shopping in pm. Home at 5:30. Pete didn't come till quite late. Chored, ate, & went to bed.

My comments:

Here is a photo of Karen and Billy at Grandpa and Grandma Kinnick's house, actually the following year. Don't have earlier ones. This feels right, to share, today, however! ;-)


Aren't they cute!! ;-)


Families are Forever!  ;-)
