75 Years Ago Today
August 20, 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 Sunday, August 20:
Real cold. Rained a little. Pete fixed generator on car. Bathe & fed Billy. Had p. salad & deviled eggs. Did dishes. Took washing in. Talked to Jean Kupka about an hour. Folks at Leo's so we went down there. He was asleep. Ida & Karen at Bradgate. Home & picked a few plums. Chored, ate, wrote in books.
Bradgate is where Ida Marie's parents lived. Leo must have not felt well, again.
Dad working on the car, again. Quite a life.
Do you have any plums to pick?
Families are Forever! ;-)
