75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - September 11, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
September 11, 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, September 11:

Cloudy & cool in morning. Pete took me in town to wash & he went up home. Mowed his beans. Got the ironing done too. Pete chored & then we ate in town. Bussy went to the show with us "Its a Wonderful World." Really was good. Home to bed at 10:30.

I enjoy seeing the sequence of farm field work would be doing, through Mom's eyes; what he told her he was doing. Fun! ;-)

Movie starred Claudette Colbert and James Stewart - had to be good!! ;-)
