"The rationing part of it, that hit us. We had hired men, and mother had to do a lot of cooking. And so sugar rationing really hit the cooking part of it. But we had neighbors that had many kids, and they didn't use all their sugar. So, we were able to buy some of their sugar sometimes If you have 10 or 12 kids, and you each got a certain ration, that's a lot of sugar We just became more ingenious. You know, if we could buy a box of Jell-O, we'd make a piecrust and put Jell-O in it and we had pie. We didn't have to have sugar. We'd just do other things. Other than that, I can't say that gas rationing really we weren't that far from town. I don't know about tires. I know my grandfather was a minister, so he got extra tires and extra gas for being a minister."
