75 Years Ago Today
August 11, 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, August 11:
Birthday notes: Toots
Up in pretty good time. Linemen putting wire from road to house pole. Pop & Merle bro't horse collars. Canned 6 quarts tomatoes in morning. Picked beans for dinner. Pete mowing buffalo burrs in pasture. Ate, did dishes & went in town. Ironed awhile. Down town tailing about a gift for folks. Talked to Joe Howe. Home at 6:00. Chored, ate, & end to bed.
Electricity is getting closer…
Needed horse collars to use the team...
