75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - September 23, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
September 23, 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 23:

Cold all day. Cleaned chicken. Fred George, Fat, Bud here for dinner. Making bean hay. Cold in pm. Pete chores & we went in town. Clarabelle saw Billy. Got groceries & a new cap for Billy. Home at 11:30.

My comments:

Bean hay, huh?! They had been "mowing bean fields." Now making the hay. Interesting. ;-)

Clarabelle Clayburg. Saw Billy. How special!! ;-)

Thanks, Mom, for a hat to keep my head warm. Suppose it looked like this one?? ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
