75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 17, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 17, 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 Thursday, August 17:


Birthday note: Elizabeth

Up early. In town & had a big washing done by 10:00. Fed Billy. Took him down to the bank in the buggy cab. Mom sent ice cream home for our dinner. Loan Co. man here when I came. Ate, Pete fixing tongue. Cleaned the house. Chored. Got ready to go to the dance at Bayard. Hal Stewart. Folks kept Billy. Ed, Elmer, Orrin & Pete. Home at 2:00.
Had lunch with Penny & Valeria.

My comments:

Dad was always fixing something. That never changed! ;-)

They went dancing!! Nice group of guys she danced with.

Lunch with friends. Quite a day!

Not our baby buggy, but one like it, I suppose...



Families are Forever!  ;-)
