75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 6, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 6, 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 Sunday, August 6:

Up late. Cloudy & cool all day.
Fixed a chicken for dinner. Just finished eating when the folks came.
Pete, Dad & Buss went fishing over by Lunds'. I scrubbed kitchen floor & swept dining room. Had pancakes for supper. Pete & I went to "East Side of Heaven" & the folks kept Billy in town. With Arnold, Julia, Ed, Elmer afterwards.

My comments:

An evening out - Billy with grandpa and grandma - two nights in a row. ;-)

Bing Crosby movie...


Families are Forever!  ;-)
