75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 22, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 22, 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 Tuesday, August 22:


Didn't get up until 9:30. Did separator, washed & fed Billy & then got dinner. Pete helped with dishes & then we went in town. Mom, Pete & I took Billy down town in the cab. At Leo's Dad bought us ice cream. Looked at antiques in the windows. Talked to Gerturde & Mr Huff & I were comparing babies. Home at 5:00 & chores. Ate, bathed, went in town. Folks kept Billy. Down & watched barn dance & the band & then went to Bill Franklin dance. Too crowded to dance & we were pretty tired so we went home at intermission.

My comments:

Does sound like Leo is running a cafe or ice cream parlor. That was what I thought. They must have converted it, somehow, from what it said in the paper.

Suppose he looked like this? Saw this yesterday in the "malted" images…  ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
