48: I remember... | The first time I saw Chuck and Edie - Pete and I were at a softball game in Titusville and they pulled in to watch from the car. Someone parked in front of them and blocked their view. Chuck got out of his car and stood in front of their car. I was afraid to meet them then. - Marilyn | Dad's favorite saying - "no need to get excited" - Pete | A magic worm hole in Grandpa and Grandma's backyard. By filling the hole with coffee grounds, Grandpa could lure worms from miles around - creating a magic worm hole that was a kid's dream. Although we knew the worms were most useful as fish bait, it was fun to play with them. - Melinda | While being rocked Dad always sang "Sue City Sue" and Mom always sang "Detour". | Sitting on Dad's lap, combing his hair and putting barrettes in his hair. - Carla | Mom would sprinkle the clothes for ironing by filling ketchup bottles with water. She would put the clothes in the freezer to iron later. | Making root beer, ice cream and maple syrup. | Mom always had a silly song for everything. - Pete | When we picked Dad up from the Oil Well we would ask if he had any gum or candy. It was always special to get a treat like that. Usually wintergreen mints. - Teen | Mom going with me on the trap line. - Jim | Grandpa and Grandma Frank, Uncle Ken and Aunt Rita coming over to play pinnacle and us sitting around the table in high chairs or on stools watching. Aunt Rita always brought cheese curls. | Picking potatoes at Grandpa Marvin's. The whole family helped but no one was allowed to drive Grandpa's tractor but Grandpa. | Picking strawberries at Grandpa and Grandma Frank's and selling them for 3 quarts for $1. | Going to Conneaut Lake Park. | When pool table was in the living room and everybody came to the Frank's to shoot pool. | After Lamey Church Grandpa (Floyd) would say we are going to such and such a place and everyone went home, packed up what they had and we all went on a ride/picnic. For instance Big Woods, Pymatuning, Kinzua, etc. Actually Uncle Duke and Aunt Leora's first date was going to see the ducks fly at Pymatuning. | Using cushions and mattresses to sled down the attic steps. - Melinda | Mom and Dad going back to the Mackentire super early to start the fire and beat other hunters to the point. The rest of us would go back about an hour before shooting time. - Jim | As the story is told - Someone dropped a stray dog off at Grandpa and Grandma Marvin's house. Grandpa asked Dad to take the dog and drop it off somewhere. Mom went along. They dropped the dog off on Gibson Road (Dad called this Sneak Road) between Horn Road and Cherrytree Road. That was their first date. | Picking up Grandpa at the Oilwell and fighting over who got to sit on the arm rest in the front seat of the green station wagon. - Jim McCann | As told to us: Mom and Grandma Marvin loved singing "Power in the Blood" and to see how many "powers" they could fit in the chorus. One day while they were singing as many "powers" as they could, Lester Plowman came to the door to impregnate one of their cows - they did not own a bull. | Grandma wearing a pair of panties on her head instead of a hair net while she was baking. - Mandy | Grandma always made us vanilla milk. - Rachel | Chloe loved laying on and falling asleep on Great Grandpa's belly when she was an infant. - Rachel
49: I remember... | Going with Grandma to pick Grandpa up from work. We would wait and play in the back of the green station wagon while we waited for Grandpa. The green fuzzy fabric of the back is very vivid in my memory. - Melinda | If we said I'm hungry or I'm tired, Dad always said "Hi hungry or hi tired, I'm Chuck, how are you?". | Mom making cinnamon rolls, we always got to eat the ends. | Aid day at the old Aid house - we all gathered at the end in a circle and held hands and sang "Blest Be the Tie That Binds". | Our family devotions - sitting around the living room and taking turns doing the devotions. - Patty | On Friday night Mom and Dad would go to town and they usually brought back candy from Woolworths - non perils or bridge mix. - Teen | One time and one time only Mom, Dad and I caught our limit of pan fish. A total of 150 at the stumps/sticks at Lake Wilhelm. - Jim | Roller skating on Thursday nights for $1 a family. | Going out to dinner was a big deal for us. We never went out to eat. Remember one time going to Jay Moyer's Restaurant in Sugarcreek. | Lamey and Dempseytown Churches having combined Easter Sunrise services at the Dempseytown ballfield then going to the Demseytown Fire Hall for a BIG breakfast. | Dad's wonderful Sunday meals. Whatever he could, he would throw in. Especially the one when Linda Persing came home with Teen from Church - I don't think we ever did eat this one. | Snipe hunting at Gypsy Camp. | As a youth, I was under the misguided impression that my grandmother had worked as a bartender. Grandma, using her amazing bartender wisdom, could pour a glass of Root Beer without having the foam overflow. To a youngster, this could only mean that Grandma had been one of the best bartenders in town. Grandma, of course, was never a bartender. - Melinda | Swinging from the big tree in the backyard at Grandpa and Grandma's house. - Melinda | Thanksgivings when Aunt Betty, Aunt Marcy and Mom all cooked a 20 lb. turkey and we all ate together at Grandpa and Grandma Frank's or Aunt Betty's or Mom and Dad''s. | One Christmas trying to keep Chuck & Edie out of our garage so they would not see the bikes we all went together to give them for Christmas. - Bernie | Grandpa's favorite saying playing Canasta - "golly neds" - Teresa | Grandma used to put chocolate chips into medicine containers for us to play with. - Jim McCann | As told to us: Grandma Frank sang in the choir at Lamey Church and she would have Dad and Uncle Dick sit in the front pew. Grandma would look down and see them playing cards during Church. | The kids were amazed when we would go to the Frosty Treat for ice cream and Grandpa would have his cone finished before we were out of the parking lot. - Bernie | Give it to Great Grandma - she can fix it. - Laynie | I gave Grandma a thong for their 50th Anniversary cruise. She turned it into a neck scarf and then for the second cruise she turned it into a change purse. - Rachel | Grandpa never could remember my dog Pepper's name so he would call her Rachel. - Rachel
