Title Thomas Morgan, Man of Faith and Courage
Description town. Fountain Green. The call went out for all men, women, and children who could work, to meet in front of the Aagard store, bringing pieces of rags or old coats to drive the grasshoppers into a deep trench. It seemed like billions of the bugs. Then the men poured coal oil on them and burned them. What a croaking time, but it saved the crops. It reminded me of other pioneers and sea gulls." Another story I liked to hear about, "Grandfather liked to come to our home. Our parents, Mother being his daughter, always welcomed him and loved to have him come, and so did we, his loving grandchildren. "We had a little wooden tub, not so little, but every fall, when it was pickling time, we filled it with lots of vegetables. We children were to help chop them all, but one, the onions, we did not like to do for it hurt our eyes. Grandfather, the sweet man he was, would say: 'I will do all onions' He had a little chopper with five knives, and he'd chop, chop, chop away. "Since we had cows, we'd chum the cream into butter. Grandpa always took his turn. Up and down would go the dasher as he counted 50 numbers. "Guess what we liked to do? Raise the dasher a little, and with a spoon, scoop us a little of the good, sweet cream to eat. What was really good, a special treat, thick cream and sugar on a slice of Mother's home-made bread. Our children today like it too, excepting those who think they should count the calories once in a while.' My sister, Luella, used to tell me about Grandfather: "He loved to tell us stories and to sing to us, all his cute and favorite childrens songs. When I was still a little girl, he would bounce me on his knee and swing me on the end of his foot. 69
