Re: New School Prayer»»Millie
Jesus said no man cometh to the father but by me but he still gives every man his own free will can we do less and hate those who don't believe as we do remember he loves them all and died for all of them even the terrorists and he says love your enemies pray for those who dispitefully use you and persecute you and those who worship god under a different name are still worshiping the same god as there is no other

amazing

the eeb is an amazing instrument when jacob my great grandson was born my son in law sent me pictures i didn't want to lose i tried to put them in favorites but all i could get them in was saved mail then one day i was deleting mail i accidently got into saved mail and discarded them of course i thought they were gone for good but browsing today i ran across albums there they were and i was able to put them into favs someone who knows more than i do will have to explain this thing to me but it may be like when our teacher in seventh grade tried to explain percentages to me i still don't understand them maybe if someone tried to teach me with the new math it would filter through but i doubt it a reader i am a mathematician i am not anyway i have at least two of my favs might have had all five if i had been awake when it happened but i was so sleepy i was thinking it was printing upside down

Re: Do you dry your dishes.

all the time i was growing up i had to dry them but when i got my own home i would rarher scald them and let them dry then later when i was working we put them in the dish washer and when they were done they were ready to put away

Re: Hang laundry outside

i liked to dry them outside unless it was too cold or too wet our basement had two rooms the back room was the furnace there was a cot back there the men came in to rest on if it was too wet to work in the fields and that is where i had my inside lines i would hang the diapers there an everyday job till one day i came in and they had me a drier they got tired of wet diapers hanging over their cot when it was wet and they got a break from field work i was really glad to have it but i still hung them outside unless it was really cold one time when i was first married i put too much bluing in the water i had two really pretty blue sheets but the neighbors laughed at me my sister in law said you didn't learn much at home did you? and it was the truth my mother was a 24 hour a day housekeeper and didn't want someone else messing with things but then my mother in law never let the men or boys in her kitchen so the first time my husband and i tried to cut up a chicken it had some very strange looking pieces



Sun, Oct 14, 2001
Re: Hang laundry outside

i always thought the wringer washer was faster yes i seperated them washed whites and baby cloths first then through the wringer into the rinse tub about 4 groups whites light colored dark colored overalls didn't take that long but with the washer i still separated them but the washer had to finish it's cycle and i always though that took a lot longer with the wringer i could be done in a couple of hours but either the automatic took at least three unless i went to the laundromat and had a different washer for each load but then i had to wait for them to finish in the drier at home i could be doing something else if i hung them out a lot of times the first load would be dry and in before the lst load was done and i hate to tell you how many times i forgot to take my husbands watch out of the pocket of his overalls one of the worst things that happened in the farming days one morning he went out to do the milking always the first chore when he came in his ears were frozen it was cold that morning we called the dr. he said have him sit in a warm room them drink one ounce of whiskey every hour well of course we didn't have any whiskey in the house so we called his dad he brought a bottle he had gotten it in town the township he lived in was wet but the one we lived in was dry if you remember what that means

Re: The man in the yellow sweater (long)
i used to like to listen to my grandmother and great grandmother but they both died the year i was 6 so there was a lot of questions i was too young to know to ask them a lot i would have liked to know better but the most i remember about my great grandmother was she was a rabid republican even during the depression when everyone else i knew was a democrat and for Roosevelt i know she lived through the civiil war but there are many things i would like to know about that that i never knew to ask in fact all i knew about it later was that an uncle of my father a generation older than my grandmother had defied his family and joined the confederate army he was banned from the family for this even marked out of the family bible sometimes i would like to know what he was thinking it must have been something other than all the rest of the family thought either side

Re: Wartime Rations

I lived in ill we paid close attention to the blackouts my dad was block captain and for a long tiime we had helmets and gas masks in our basement we were careful because there was a factory in our town that could have been a target Caterpillar tractor think at one time they made tanks i was too young to do any war work i was 15 when the war started and my mother wouldn't have let me near a U.S.O. place though the older girls in the neighborhood did i never did know if there was an age limit on them but as far as my mother was concerned there was and as far as the WACS OR THE WAVES even when i was older i couldn't have belonged to them there was a 5' 2" limit an i was never over 4'9" in fact i'm still not as Alice said 3" is such a rediculous height and of course i was the wrong gender to be drafted though i was probably too short for that too

Re: Tornados,Power Failures,

several years ago there was a tornado in Peoria my folks were still living and i tried for hours to get them on the phone but either all the lines were down or they were all busy the most it did to them was take out a picket fence in the back but it did take the roof off of the new high school i say new because it was the same high school i graduated from in 1944 but it was built new and at the location of our football field when i went to school the band had marching practice there we had to go there in the morning band was first hour it was about a mile west from where i lived and the school was a mile east after practivce we had to get back to the school in time for second hour the director would take the ones with the bass drums and the tubas in his car but all i had was a clairinet so i was on my own one silvelining i thought band members were excused from gym and i wasn't atheletic so that was ok by me marching and geting back to school was plenty of exercise

HOW I disgrased MYSELF

was reading about the different technology since Korea the hospital where i worked was physically attached to the University of Missouri Medical center one time they remodeled their emergency room and waiting area we all went for a tour of the new facilities of course part of it was the helicopters of the flight for life i said to the man who was conducting the tour how long have they been putting the patients inside he looked at me and laughed and said do you know how long it's been since Korea of course i know any of you who ever watched Mash understand and Bill my hubby was in Korea so we were pretty constant watchers now they have the helicopters fixed up better than an ambulance there is even a crash cart in them that's what they use to shock someone in case of cardiac arrest when the heart stops and there is always an R.N. that flies with them and i think a dr. anyway it is different than it was in the 50's also different than wartime they might pick up a lot of car crash victims but not too many battlefield casualties
