75 Years Ago Today
August 8, 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 Tuesday, August 8:
Up late. Rainy & cold. Did up usual work & went in town to dinner. Beefsteak.
Down town awhile. Had malted's at I.Cr. Shoppe. Put on slacks & rode Bussy's Bike awhile. Home. Scrubbed & cleaned the living room. Canned 1 qt, 1 pt of tomato preserves. Lucille & Merlin & Mrs. Barrett & Jerry were here awhile. Ate & wrote in books.
Did she say: "Beefsteak?"
