75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - October 28, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
October 28, 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 28:


Pete up home again helping pick. Did up usual work. Cleaned the house. Buzzy came out at noon and I took him in about 6:30. Home, chores, ate, cleaned up & went in town late. With Jean & Bob down on street until 10.30. Then went to Carroll in Kupka's Olds. Had candied apples. Saw a wreck. Stopped south of Glidden. Confiding. Folks kept Billy. Home at 2:00.

My comments:

Assume Grandma had Billy asleep… on bottle… much freer to go do things!!! ;-)

"Confiding" word very interesting?!?!?  ;-)

Candied apples...




Families are Forever!  ;-)
