Title Our Home
Description just to be here with my wife and girls, sharing music and love. It is all I could wish. Heaven couldn' t be better. " Daddy was a member of the Fountain Green Wool City Mounted Band. At daybreak on the 4th and 2 4 th of July we would wake to the band playing through the streets. Daddy also played in the dance band in our town amusement hall. Everybody went to the dances, young and old, and danced until our feet and bodies we re exhausted. From the windows in our north bedrooms we had an imposing view of Mt. Nebo with its three Snow-capped and with the rising sun casting a sight. Daddy and Mother were a team, working together to make a happy home. They were blessed with just two daughters and would have loved to have had a dozen. Mother was hands and feet for Daddy. He would explain how something should be done, such as mendi ng a fence, feeding the animals, or whatever, and Mother could do anything. She also taught school, was Stake President of the Primary for many years, and a favorite speaker at church or in State women's clubs where she also served as President. Our yard was filled with flowers and trees. A black-walnut tree that came from spacious lawn. A hollyhock nook was a favorite place to play. We made hollyhock dolls with toothpicks and blossoms that danced on the hill sloping down to our driveway. Canna lilies surrounded by pansies graced the center flower bed. Daddy devised a unique watering system that had a long pipe wi th holes drilled 12 inches apart along the length of the pipe. we could spray the entire lawn just by moving the handle at the end. It was also a perfect place
