Title I Remember
Description and Utah, and his large family. Documentation: Book Utah 1932 History of Sanpete and Emery Counties 1898 Will C. Clos. Personal Secretary Personal Recollections I Remember Lois T. Kribs Non Professional Honorable Mention Short Story The wind rustling through the leaves of the old apple tree makes crackling noises in the microphone that sits on the table between us, a small price to pay for the comfort the wind gives us from the heat of this July day. Eighth of July, 1976, to be precise. Edward Kirkwood Tooth is 84 years old today and reminiscing about his life as we ask him questions. "What is the first thing you remember?" Ed gazes off into space for a few moments, then says, "I guess the first thing I remember is playing on a rope swing hung from a big old tree in our backyard. Whenever Mother baked bread, she would bring all of us a piece of bread torn from the hot loaf. It would be covered with rich sweet cream butter and honey. 1 can taste that yet. "My older brother Will used to shine shoes in the barbershop. When I was around eight years old. I started shining shoes there. I remember when a carnival came to town once, a lady from the carnival walked into the barbershop, sat down in the chair were I shined shoes, put her foot up on the pedestal, looked down at me and said, 'Com'n boy. let's get a shine on these boots. I guess I was gaping at her, I'd never shined a ladies shoes before, but I went right to work. "We lived a block from the Tabernacle, which had been built by the time I was born. Everything exciting that took place in town happened in this area. Also, there was a great playground there. When I was young. I spent so much time on Main Street one of the men in the barbershop told me I was going to grow up to be a 'slicker.' I didn't know what a slicker was then, but I don't believe anyone would say I'm a 'slicker' today. 99
