75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 4, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 4, 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 4:

Didn't get up until 8:15. Pop here awhile. Ate, bathed Billy, did dishes, sep, ate dinner & went in home & washed. Pete threshed our rye & then threshed for Fat. Bussy lots better today.
Lil, Del, Roberta, Dennis, Jennie, Bernie, Iva stopped in home in p.m.
Folks came out after milk & cream at nite. Had french toast for supper. Took baths & went to bed.

My comments:

Nice that Buzzy was getting to feel better, for sure.

Dennis would have been about 9 months old. Roberta near 5. Here she is at 2. Just too cute to pass by...



Families are Forever!  ;-)
