75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - August 7, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
August 7, 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 Monday, August 7:

Cloudy all day. Lite men put the brace on the yard pole. Did the separator. Made an apple pie. Pete picked the canner & a pail full of tomatoes & then went in to town after some groceries. Ate dinner, read paper, canned 15 quarts tomatoes & fixed some preserves. Pete scythed some weeds. Pop here awhile at evening. Fed Billy, got supper. Pete wiped dishes for me. He shaved & I wrote in books. To bed.

My comments:

Lots of tomatoes canned…

I like the sounds of the apple pie... that first piece was REAL good...  ;-) With ice cream...  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
