"Cleaning the house was a big job because we didn't have vacuum sweepers then. We took a broom and you swept that carpet and the dust just flew all over… Sometimes in the evening when we girls were older… we'd sit around the piano and when dad would come in and get washed up and he'd come in and sit with us and we'd sing. I think he like to hear us play. I never was as good at it as my two sisters, but I got by when I was teaching school, to sing with the kids."
