"We had chores in the morning. Like I said before, take care of the horses. And there's always cattle to feed. And we had to see to it the dog got something, and the cats. Eat breakfast and take off for school. And we walked to school, about two miles… And then during the time we had snow or too much rain, dad would take us to school with a horse and a sled or a horse and a kind of a buggy we had. Mostly it was a wagon. That buggy didn't last too long. But, when he had a chance he would give us a ride to school. Put some hot bricks for us to stand on, on our feet to keep warm."
