Posted by request of Judy. This photo shows the house after it had been abandoned for years. The siding was applied after our family left it. Our parents bought this house and the small orchard covered lot on which it stands by trading for it. I lived in this house for the first nine years of my life. I have the happiest memories of living here. Two rooms, uninsulated, coal stoves for heating, no running water or inside bathroom, no electricity until 1939 when I was seven years old, no refrigerator, no bedroom for our parents. Dad was often gone during these lean Depression years looking for a days' work here and there while Mom coped with raising two, then three, then four children. No car while Dad was gone. No telephone. The yellow roses speak volumes. This was home.
