We lacked cousins in the area, for my Dad`s sisters had settled in other parts of the country after college and my Mom was an only child from Iowa who met, fell in lve with Dad during college and married after a year of teaching. Our hands must not be idle, for the devil awaited such opportunities! Reading was a treat and a joy! Mildred yearned for cottonlike Wonder Bread like the town kids had, so did I. My brother and I, salt shaker in pocket, sat in the dirt and ate tomatoes warmed by the sun. We sang around the piano as my Mother played and accompanied us in her full, rich alto voice. We listened to war news, while Mom knit socks and sweaters for boys in the Army and Navy, suffered through rationing, feared invasion over our hills....All considerations for someone born 11 years later. I am grateful she wrote her memoir!
