Living beside a Railroad Track
Posted On 02/09/2019 18:32:31

I can remember when I was six years old, living beside the railroad tracks. Us neighborhood kids would yell, "Blow your whistle!" He would! I always stayed there watching until the Caboose would appear!! Sometimes the train stopped for water. Dad got aquinted with the Caboose man! The Caboose man, started throwing me bags of candy as they went through! I shared with the others. When Dad&Mom got me my first two wheeled bike, He is the one that pushed me and I just kept pedaling, until I ran into my uncle Dubs truck!! Dad was standing there but this gentleman was the one that got me started! Never forget him! Hobo's would sometimes jump off the train. My mother, had them sit on the outside of our little house, she gave them plate of food&probably coffee. My parents had very little, but their hearts were in the right place, giving to those who have needs! Be back later! Hugs Shirley

Born&Raised In Warsaw, Indiana
Posted On 01/30/2019 16:56:17

I was born the second child to my parents. My brother died at seven months. I was born in 1944. In Warsaw, In. After me, mom&dad had two more girls and then we had a brother! Dad use to make cement blocks for a small place in Warsaw. Mom was mostly a housewife. Worked away a few times not for long. With four of us kids her work was before her each day! We played in our yards or our neighbors&friends. We walked to school. Walked home for lunch, when we lived close enough. Dad later drove a cement mixer. Warsaw has 101 lakes in our county. Swimming&fishing were the big sports for us! When I got in seventh grade, I joined the band. Enjoyed it so much!  I can seldom remember eating out! Meals were eaten together. Dad had a packed lunch in his dinner bucket. Will write more another day!
