Making Ends Meet

Hello Dear Reader,
The house Grandpa (Wesley) Carter and his brother, Bill, built for their parents had no electricity or inside toilet facilities. It was lined with cardboard. It must have been difficult to move from their home on Center Street even though the house they moved into was new.

That year Wes went deer hunting, pheasant hunting, and duck hunting. He was successful in each of the hunts. I’m sure his family was grateful for the meat that he provided for them that fall. It was 1938. The country was still experiencing The Great Depression and the Carter family was still struggling.
