75 Years Ago Today
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:

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