75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 2, 1939



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 2, 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 Wednesday, August 2:

My comments:

"Light Co. brought poles." PROGRESS!! ;-)

Cousin Gary Hilgenberg was one year old!! ;-)

Young pigs and old sows… let's see an old sow… not really that old, but she'll do, for now! ;-)




Families are Forever!  ;-)
