75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - October 4, 1939


75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
October 4, 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 Wednesday, October 4: [bold]

Up at 7:00. Ate, Pete over helping Bud with beans again. Did dishes, separator, scrubbed front room & kitchen.  Pete home a 5:30. They turned the lights on at 5:00. Did we ever have fun. Folks came out for supper. Kinda rainy. Ed Kult came to sell Duke E. tickets. Did dishes & went to bed.

My comments:

It is really hard to imagine what it must have been like to have "the lights on" for the first time at their farm home… "Did we ever have fun." I suppose that about covers it!! ;-)

Why not?!?






Families are Forever!  ;-)
