Mr. Henicke lived at Mentz and from time to time he would bring us cord
wood which my brother Leon and me had to saw up and split, the big chunks to be used

would bring a rabbit or squirrel which my mother would cook.
We had a wood stove in the kitchen with a water reservoir at the rear. My
mother made homemade bread about twice a week in large bread pans that held about
four loaves. She also made yeast cakes from time to time by keeping a portion of a batch
as a starter for the next batch. People would come by and buy the number of cakes they
needed at five cents per cake.

so she usually baked bread in the early mornings. It was fine in the winter time as we
took Saturday night baths in a large tub with water heated in a wash tub on the stove
and using the water from the stove reservoir. Later my mother used a kerosene stove,
but she continued to bake her bread in the wood stove.
