75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 19, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 19, 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 Saturday, August 19:
Real warm. Sultry. Pete mowing weeds. LVene, Betty, Polly down to get their hair set. Noon before they left. Had pancakes for dinner. Pete mowing weeds over on 80 in pm. He took the horses up home & I went up after him at 5:00. He wasn't ready so I went to Norma's a little while. Chored, ate, took baths & went in to town. Played the new piano rolls. Ate ice cream Mom made. Down town & did the shopping. Up home at (sic) ate muskmelon. Home at 12:00.

My comments:

Dad appears to have finally cut all the weeks. I'm fighting weeds, here, now, 75 years later… ;-)

How is your muskmelon coming?

Families are Forever!  ;-)
