75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 1, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 1, 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, August 1:

Birthday note: Mrs. Weaver

Up early. Took Pete up home. They finished threshing Vonnahme's flax & took the machine to Toot's but got rained out. LVene came to have her hair set. I went in & washed. Bussy had his tonsils out at Jewell's. I was there when he came home. Chored early. Ate, bathed, & went to bed. Rained.

Do you know what golden flax seeds look like???



Families are Forever!  ;-)
