75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - October 20, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
October 20, 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 Friday, October 20:
Rainy. Toots wanted snow fence so we dug spuds & carrots. Mr. & Mrs. Ensey came about more insurance. Merle here helping with crib. Stayed for dinner. Washed dishes nearly all pm. In to Frenchs'. Carrie & Nettie practicing for club. Home, chores, went to bed.

My comments:

Still tired from last couple of days activities… can feel it is her cadence and her choice of words. ;-)

Here is some snow fence, piled up in front, not being used. Perhaps, Toots could have used it!! ;-)
 
 


Families are Forever!  ;-)
