75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 3, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 3, 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 Thursday, August 3:

Up early. Took Pete up home. Frosted cake, bathed Billy & got rest to go to Toots' to cook for his threshers. In Polly's car. Had a keen ham dinner & ice cream. Stopped to show Billy to Aunt Lena. Stayed there nearly an hour. Went in to town. Bussy doesn't feel so well tonite. Home, did dishes, separator, ate, bathed, & went to bed.

My comments:

Aunt Lena was a sister of Michael Smith, so, my Dad's great-aunt… Always called her Aunt Lena. She married Bert Brown, they had a farm over near Scranton. No children.

Her she is, a couple of years later, holding cousin Judy Higenberg. ;-)

P.S. This is the day Nancy Bolger was born to friends, Glenn and Ruth Bolger, but Mom didn't know about it yet, of course. ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
