75 Years Ago Today
October 16, 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, October 16:
Masching bro't out a new washing machine & radio. Real cold. Didn't wash. Went in town after dinner. Got clothes pins, line, etc. Went in to show at nite. Robert T., Hedy La Marr in "Lady of the Tropics."
Now life can start for real, on the farm, with electricity, a washing machine, and an electric radio… light fixtures were already in place. What a life! ;-)
Good movie, I suspect! They deserved it! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
