75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 25, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 25, 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 Friday, August 25:

Up in good time. Ate, did separator, dishes, bathed Billy & went in town. Did Mom's & my ironing. 8 shirts, 10 dresses. Ironed all day. Pete scythed along corn field.
Home at 6:00. Chored, ate, fixed pickles.

My comments:

"… fixed pickles…" two nights in a row???

Dad still cutting those last weeds along the corn, where he couldn't get with the horse-drawn mower. Neat!  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
