75 Years Ago Today
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.
Lots of tomatoes canned…
I like the sounds of the apple pie... that first piece was REAL good... ;-) With ice cream... ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
