75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - November 5, 1939

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
November 5, 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 Sunday, November 5:

I went to church. Billy & Pete stayed home. Got dinner. Ate, Toots, Butch came & took Pete over on 80. Did dishes, sep. Irene & Betty came. Fixed Irene’s hair.  Mabel Hupp, Dean, Wanda here a minute. Bro’t back lamp. Pete bro’t picker at 5:30. Chores, made waffles & went to bed.

My comments:

Harvesting in full gear.

Had waffles lately? I do want to catch that drip...  ;-)

Families are Forever!  ;-)
