Eileen KINNICK - 75 yrs ago - Week 27 - June 26-July 2, 1937
75 yrs ago
Week 27 - June 26-July 2, 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 27 (June 26-July 2): After finishing last week at a Friday night dance with the Lawrence Welk dance band, in Carroll, this was a pretty quite week, concluded with another Friday night dance outing.
Picking Mulberries was the other highlight, for me! ;-)
I look forward to your comments!
Families are Forever! ;-)
