75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - September 24, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
September 24, 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 Sunday, September 24:


Didn't get up until 8:00. Ready for church. Got there about 10:15. Billy cried so we left early. In town to dinner. Did dishes & went down to Rasmuses. Leo & Ida came later. Home at 7:00. Choring late. Took washing in town. Home at 10:30.

My comments:

"Cried just enough… we're going home… I can quit crying…"   ;-)



Families are Forever!  ;-)
