75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 5, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 5, 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 Saturday, August 5:

Birthday note: Rita Ballard

Up late. Pete took threshing machine back up home in morning & I went to Carroll to the Dr.
Everything is OK. Shopped for Merle. Talked to Mr. Clayburg.
I got a new brassiere & dress. Home at 6:00. Chored, ate, cleaned up & went in to town.
Folks kept Billy. Parked in front of Barber's. Had a malted milk at the Ice Cream Shoppe.
Home at 11:00.

My comments:

Have you seen your Doctor on a Saturday, lately???? ;-)

Great that everything was OK. Looks like a "normal" Saturday night!

Photo of Polly and Merle Bower, and their girls, Joyce on left, Joan in center, plus Judi Hilgenberg on right... this is about 5-6 years later, of course.

Families are Forever!  ;-)
