Cry Baby

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandma (Mary) Carter went through four grades of school in Milford. When they were young, she and her sister, Lois, walked atop the old cemetery fence all the way to school. They were impressed by the collection of colored glass and rocks on the Mexicans’ graves.

When the cold wind blew Mary pulled her crocheted tam down over her face and peered out through the holes created by stretching the crocheting.

She said that she cried her way through all four grades. She recalled her sister, Lois, being pretty disgusted with her when she had to take Mary home sobbing over nothing. Lois, on the other hand, was a tomboy and won all the boys’ marbles at recess.
