Audrey: I can’t remember working in the kitchen with mother. I was the only one there. I was a child. I liked raw potatoes dipped in vinegar. I would just sit around coloring. Every Christmas I got a new batch of crayons and a coloring book. I had to make it last a whole year.
I had a nice childhood on the farm. I had to entertain myself. I would play with Elsie Miller. Every once in a while, my Mother would visit her Mother. Elsie and I would run around the stonewall of historical cemetery No. 9. We had sticks that we pretended were guns. We’d shoot the cow flops and pretend they were soldiers.
