75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - September 2, 1939


 75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
September 2, 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 Saturday, September 2:

Pete up to Hufferd's shelling corn. Bussy fixing his airplane. I cleaned the house. LVene came & had her hair fixed just before noon & Polly came just after dinner. Waxed kitchen & dining room rugs. (sic) Pete home at 3:30 & finished plowing so. field. Chored, ate, bathed & went in town. Bussy to show. Took Billy down on street with us. Home at 12:00.

My comments:

Did the corn sheller look at all like this?


Families are Forever!  ;-)
