Dirty Laundry

Hello Dear Reader,
After the adventures of living in a railroad car the Hall family moved to a section hand house right beside the tracks. Grandma (Mary) Carter remembers hearing tramps talking outside their windows at night. She remembers hearing train whistles and the sound of engines coming and going all night long. After they moved to a quieter area the family missed the noise and couldn’t sleep for the stillness. But each time they moved their living situation improved a little.

It can be very cold and windy in Milford. Once, when they lived on a windy hill, Grandma (Caroline) Hall left a tub of dirty clothes on the back porch. The wind picked up and sailed their dirty clothes all over town. That was embarrassing! Thank goodness the Halls had a sense humor.
