A Childhood,Wooden Clothes Washer
When we would go visit My Granma Dysart she would take corn and throw it on the ground for the chickens. When they got close she would grab one, wring it neck & we had chicken for supper. She had an old wooden washing machine that you were the power source. It had to be peddled like a bike. Every afternoon she would take her pistol & go outside & shoot a couple of times. Said it kept thieves away. It must of worked, nobody bothered her. She live to be 99 years old, having outlived 4 husbands & was married at the time of her death.
