75 Years Ago Today
October 21, 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, October 21:
Did usual work. Betty at Max's. Polly came down & had her hair set. She helped me do the dishes. Toots, Wayne B. & Merle here moving oats. Polly brought Billy's pictures. In to Mrs. Shavers'. She gave Billy a white blanket. Home & chored & then went back in to town again. Home late.
Sure wish I had "Billy's pictures" - I don't think any have survived… from that time. Darn!
Glad they got to go back into town for "Saturday nite" - they always enjoyed that… over many, many years!!
Suppose that blanket looked like this?? ;-)
Note: Next entry will be Oct 24... ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
