Childhood Memories

My grandparents lived less than a mile away when I was growing up and they have a farm so I sort of grew up on a farm. When I was old enough I helped butcher chickens, cows and pigs. I also pulled weeds in the garden, milked and fed cows and snuck grapes from the vines with my cousins.

My Great Grandma Brownell was always kniting and crocheting. She made scarves and these cute little head wraps with flowers, it made me feel like a princess. Because she was in a wheel chair for as long as I can remember she couldnt do much but she loved to play games. I remember sitting at the table for hours with her and my Grandma Coons and my cousin Hazel playing Skip Bo, Scrable, Aggrivation and dice games.

Making a fort out of a fallen tree just inside the edge of the woods behind our house. We even used a smaller tree nearby for a "Look out", and bounced on the branches of the fallen tree.

Going to the school to play softball or basket ball with my cousins and uncles
Building and painting a play house with my dad
Tearing down our old house by hand
Playing on the wood chunks in the yard before they where split for firewood
Writing group stories with friends
Making hills and tracks to drive the three wheeler over
Working on cars with my dad
Playing "Don't wake the ghosts" in Grandma Coons basement
Playing house and school
Tea parties with Hazel and Aunt B
Pets: cats, dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, fish, ducks, rabbits, mice, ferrett, birds
My cat Gizmo's many litters of kittens, some who were deformed
Climbing the rose trellis to sit on the roof and look around the neighborhood
Catching frogs, snakes, lightning bugs and butterflies
Spending the night at Grandma Jacobs with Tomi, Kristy and April and sneaking out to the kitchen to snack while everyone was sleeping
Pretending I was part of a singing group with my cousins and having concerts for the adults in my grandma's front yard
Me, Tomi and Kristy trying to run away from April and hide
Sneaking Apples, grapes, and veggies from my grandparents gardens
Tomi's Accident outside our house after we had been looking at stones


Harvey's Lawn and Tree Service - This was my dad's business and I worked with him before I was old enough to work anywhere else. I started out raking leaves and mowing grass when I was older I helped with trees. I did the roping while he was in the tree cutting. I also moved wood and brush and loaded the trucks. Only a few times did I use the chainsaw or wood splitter.
