75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 18, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 18, 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 18:

Birthday note: Dad, Buss

Really sleepy. Slept till 8:00. Gave Billy his bath, did dishes, seperatar, Pete fixed mower tongue & mowed the road. Ate dinner, read paper, did dishes, fed Billy. Pete picked cucumbers & I  picked tomatoes with him. Fixed a batch of sweet pickles, bread & butters & tomato preserves. Folks came out while we were eating. They were going to Rasmuses after Buzzy. I went in town in pm. Got Bussy's present - 2 rolls of music. Up home a minute. Tired at nite. Wrote in books & went to bed.

My comments:

Mom… you really amaze me… Buss, Buzzy, Bussy… in the same writing…!!

Dad got the road mowed, finally. Neat…

Cucumbers and pickles, sweet and bread & butter… YUM!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
