Eileen KINNICK - 75 yrs ago - Week 23 - June 5-11, 1937

75 yrs ago
Week 23 - June 5-11, 1937

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. During the latter half of 2011, commented weekly on these entries.
For 1937, I am transcribing the daily entries, currently, at The KINNICK Project surname blog.

In this weekly blog post, I will make summary comments and observations, and perhaps add a photo, from time to time. Starting here with Week 10, I am switching to the week ending on Friday.
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 9 years old. Pete Smith is her 'boy friend' - fourth month starting Jan 1 (they do marry, in Mar 1938).

Week 23 (June 5-11): She went to Carroll on Tuesday, June 8, to get her driver's license and pick up the wallpaper her employer had ordered. While there, she also got a Malted Milk (yum!) and '3 dresses for Mom" - most interesting trip. [The chicken looked and sounded delicious, as well!]

Much of the week was about stuff going on at the law office where she worked. It appears some changes are in the offing… we'll have to wait and see, I suppose.

I look forward to additional comments!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
