75 Years Ago Today
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.
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!! ;-)
Families are Forever! ;-)
