75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 21, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 21, 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 Monday, August 21: [bold]

Birthday note:
Pauline Bower

Didn't get up very early. Pete & I both washed our heads & then we went in to town & down to Leo's to help him. Ida Marie was up to her folks. Ate there. Home after dinner, changed clothes & went back in. Did the chores, bathed, & went in again. Folks kept Billy and we went to Hal Stewart dance. Floor swell & we had a keen time. Band was real good. Had malted's at intermission. Home at 2:00.

[Big letters, under, like a reminder to herself] 4 Co Fair?

My comments:

Was Hal Stewart band there for the Fair? Apparently a dance floor that was new to them, or, a temporary floor, perhaps? Nice to see them back dancing. They really like to do that, for sure!! ;-)

I put "Malted Milk 1939" in a Google Image search, and this is one of the images that came up, from my post of August 5!!!

… as well as this one, further along… guess it is ok to use photo for this source… I've contributed a bunch, myself, it seems.

P.S. Actually , most of the folks in these photo are mentioned, here, even though the search picked up the "1939" as the primary search. Don't you just love technology!! ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
