Eileen KINNICK - 75 yrs ago - Week 46 - Nov 9-15

75 yrs ago
Week 46 - Nov 9-15

My mother, Eileen KINNICK (maiden name), kept a diary from 1932 until her death in 1999. In Feb 2005, I created a website of her 1936 diary, the year she graduated from high school, and started dating my dad later in the year. The transcription, week by week, with commentary, notable items, and my comments are sitting there to view, unchanged (a few bad links and all!). . You are welcome to click on the Weekly Index, and go back to read the first half of the year, at your leisure.
My comments - in red
Commentary at the time - in green
Notable items - in blue
Setting: The family lived in a farmhouse a couple of miles out of town (Coon Rapids, Iowa). Older brother, Leo, lived at home; his girl friend, later wife, Ida, visited regularly. Younger brother, Buzzy (she often wrote Bussy) was 8 years old; see photo.

Week 46. A four movie week. Tuesday was especially busy, going to Des Moines shopping - a 150 mile round trip; but back in time for the Bank Nite movie and cash drawing.

I really like the "With Teddy" photo I posted on this week of Eileen and dog on summer lawn.

"Patrolmen & their flash lights!" They were parked by the court house in Carroll. Seemed to be having a lot of fun!  ;-)

Comments welcomed! 

Families are Forever!  ;-)
