Life on a Milk Farm

I came from a family of four boys and I was the only girl. While it was great having all those brothers to protect me at times it was utterly frustrating. We would visit my Uncle and Aunt frequently and they two had boys, three of them. When we visited them, I tried as I might to hang out with the... Sign in to see full entry.

Army Brat

My father was in the Army. I grew up hearing the word 'Army Brat' all my life. I didn't mind being an army brat, because I thought it meant that I was tougher than most kids.

The Coal Truck Incident

I remember the first house my grandparents lived in, no indoor plumbing. A double seater outhouse and baths outside on the front lawn in a barrel type of bath tub. Grandma would heat the water on the wood burning stove in the kitchen. Kids get their bath first, then the adults get a new tub of... Sign in to see full entry.

Growing up in Coal mining country.

I remember a few things about growing up in central Pennsylvania. The biggest memories were racing our sleds down snow covered hills in the winter. Building forts in the snow and yes, caving them in on top of each other. What were we thinking? Crab apple wars from the top of the trees. We could have... Sign in to see full entry.
