“A Loving Farmer’s Daughter”
By Dean, Delpha, Mary, Lois, Marge and Luella
It looks like a girl and she is out by the barn where the chickens are. It appears that she should have on a heavier jacket says Dean. This little girl’s name is Julie. I’m sure the chicken has a name. I’ve never dealt with chickens, so I don’t know, says Mary. I think she maybe has some eggs in there by the way she is holding her hands. There is also some on the ground. When ever you live on a farm, it’s everyone’s chores. She’s got to pick the eggs up and take them to the house. It’s in the afternoon, in Minnesota, up north in Roscoe, Minnesota. She’s a healthy girl. It is 1930, in July because she is all dressed up and it’s usually for an occasion. It is around the fourth of July, even farmers party then. She takes the eggs to the house where her mother is, and she will do something with them, maybe bake a cake. She makes a chocolate cake with vanilla frosting says Delpha. They will make the desserts she likes, like cakes and pies because usually for the fourth of July you have company. Do you think there are any “moos” in there? Dean is concerned about the welfare of the little girl. I think she is happy because her cheeks are puffy and she has a smile on her face like she is happy says Mary. The little girl grows up and is happy. She has a ribbon in her hair, so we know her mother cared.
