the icebox?Every town had an icehouse so the folks could have ice in the icebox.Then a man came with a wire.Daddy says we dont need that wire,We will get along fine without it.Eventually he came back and hooked the wire up.We looked up and there was a light hanging on a wire from the top of the room.Then there was a place in the wall to hook up a refrigerator.We were told to not open the door much but we looked in a lot.I thought I would lick the frost off the aluminum ice tray.My tounge stuck on it.Mom finally figured to pour water on it to get it free.Otherwise I would talk diffrently today.

By the time i got here, the folks had our icebox in the yard, put a creamcan cover on a hotplate of woodchips and smoked fish in there. I remember when grampa got electricty though - i got heck for playing with the kitchen lite. Click a thing over here - something happens over there! What a gizmo! :)
