There was, of course, the ever-present and ever-necessary vegetable garden. Little Emma was a lovely child with her golden blond hair, blue eyes, and dimples. She grew up in the heart of a fun-loving family that enjoyed life, despite the loss of their mother. The siblings had affectionate nicknames for each other, some imaginative, some not so. Lilly was called Lil, Clarence was Cat, Selma was Sam, and Oscar was Slick. Then there was Runt (Helen), Em (Emma), Gib (Gilbert), and Ray (Raymond). Robert, the baby of the family, was always simply “Robert,” probably because he didn’t grow up with the rest of them.

We also enjoyed playing in the grain bin. We would climb up to a small ledge in a corner of the bin and jump into the grain.
