Note from Brother David:
Memories indeed! I remember most of these artifacts in the picture--the stockinged leg, the toilet seat picture frame--this place was packed! Where did all this stuff end up? And everybody smoked--all the old aunts-Gert, Paula, Min, Grampa had his pipe--no worries about 2nd hand smoke then! And even to this day, I don't know where everyone stayed--most of the time our family slept outside on a mattress--don't ask me where the aunts stayed unless it was in the small guest house nearby.
One morning I turned on the kitchen faucet and a small minnow came out! Fish for breakfast! Here I dug many a hole for the honeypot--always sloshed on my socks on the way to emptying it.
Truly a wonderful place to wile away the hours and days. I loved being there.
Counter note from Sister Pauli:
My most vivid memories are of the freeway of "cobwebs" that encircled
the crib I used to have to sleep in! No wonder I have issues...
Gee, Pauli's memories seem to have a little different slant to them.....did you feed her that minnow, David?
What's a tiny minnow among siblings?! It went down easy.
