FC: Period 6's Collection of Memories
1: Old Memories | Prologue | As 13 and 14 year olds, we have people that are much more wiser and older than us. Their wisdom and stories has been passed down to us, through them telling us about their memories, of such things as, love, heartbreaking times, and just plain fun times. The following pages of this scrapbook are a way to honor the people who's wisdom and memories got passed down to us. | Between their time as little kids, elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and their always growing memories after schooling, they all have touched us with their memories and made us wiser in some way or another. | They made us wiser with memories....

11: My Great Grandma Anna 88 years old | Her first Christmas present was a purse | When their family would go to church in the winter, they would ride a horse and sleigh
12: Picking Cherries This is my grandmas memory of one summer "One summer when I was about 9 or 10 my brothers and sister and I decided we needed to make some money. So my dad said he would help us go pick cherries at Seyfert orchards. The people that owned the orchard were cousins of my dad and every year they hired people to pick the cherries. The first day we packed our lunches and my dad drove us to the orchard at 6:30 am. We stopped and picked up 2 of our cousins on the way. We also met some other relatives at the orchards and we all worked as a group. My dad registered us and each family member received a punch card to keep track of the amount of cherries we picked. We were paid 28 cents per bucket. We had to climb up A frame ladders to pick the cherries you couldn't reach from the ground. The ladders were not very stable and it seemed like one of us was always falling off a ladder and crashing to the ground.
13: After the first day we had to ride our bikes to the orchard which was right across the street from our Grandparents farm. Our 2 cousins lived right up the street so we would stop by for them on the way to the orchard. We would have to leave our house around 6 Am to get to the orchard by 7 Am when the picking started. We would stop at our grandparents and leave our lunches on the porch in the shade to keep cool and then go to the orchard. At lunch time we would ride our bikes to our grandparents get a drink from the outside pump and eat our lunch on the porch and then go back to the orchard and finish out the day. We generally worked from 7 AM to around 4 or 5 PM. We did that every day for a week. Besides poison Ivy and lots of sore muscles we each received $4.90 cents for our labor. We did this for one more year and then decided it was too much work. " -Pat Krall Melissa Casciotti

18: Summer Days | Michael Darok
19: My grandfather is eighty-four years old. Despite his age, he can still recall events that partook seventy-three years ago, such as this: He grew up in the Depression, raised by his grandparents, on the typical neighborhood street of ‘Little Italy.’ When he was eleven, my great-grandparents could afford to buy their son a bike. Immediately, he learned to ride the full-sized Roadmaster. Of course, the heavy bike was previously used, and it would be used even further. A year later, after consulting several adults, my grandfather realized he needed an education. Therefore, he was hired as a young newspaper boy, and given the slowest route in Wildwood, New Jersey. However, my grandfather made the best of it. He sought out a prime location, on the corner of the best bakery in a mile-wide radius. So, his transportation altered from a used bike, to a used bike plus a wagon, to a newspaper truck, all piled high with drowning newspaper businesses. Even after seventy-three years, my grandfather still remembers the envious 14-year olds, when they discovered the ‘new guy’s’ super selling spot.

To today's date, they've been married for 48 years and counting. They now have 5 kids, 3 of which have continued the generation and have had kids of their own. My grandpa's favorite memory, was when he was just about 9 or 10 years old. It was his birthday. His family which included his parents, 3 brothers, and 2 sisters had surprised him with a small party. This was special because life was hard back then, occasions like this was rarely recognized. Instead, time was put into chores and work that need to be done. One of the chores my grandpa had to do was haul water in buckets from nearby water sources to the house.
38: My father was playing baseball with his brothers and got hit in the head with a baseball bat. He went to the hospital and got stitches.
39: At Christmas time, my grandmother brought home boxes of computer cards. My dad and aunts made wreathes out of the cards. They would spray paint them green. My dad sprayed one on the floor and got his sisters in trouble for the green paint on the floor.
42: The memories of my Dad I was born in Chilpa De Diaz Oaxaca. That is a very small village between hills and with a very large river; all the houses had walls of bricks or sticks and roof tiles or straw. We didn't have cars and many people were transported by horse or wagon. To work in the field they used horses, bulls, and donkeys. I lived in a little house of adobe, so my dad had to work hard for plumber, electrician and all he could do, then he came to work here in America and my mom stayed with us.
43: During my childhood I was happy because all the afternoons after school playing with my neighborhood friends hide and seek, the belt burned. One time I wanted a goat, my dad buy me one, and led the field to graze, but then I got bored and no longer wanted to care for what my dad got mad and sold them. And later study the elementary and high school in my town and then I went to another village where I studied for Teacher in Elementary Education. | By: Evelyn
46: Mindy | My Awesome Grandfather
47: Mindy | One of the memories my grandfather told me was when he was a little boy he would refuse to eat at the dinner table instead he would eat with his pets. So whenever his mom would say it is time for dinner he would always grab his plate and eat with his pets. Now he doesn't understand why he did that!
48: By Tiffany Seibert | The Great Depression | My Nana was 14 years old in the Middle of the Great Depression.This is a little account of what she remembered from the time. | "At the beginning when it first started," she said, "There were a lot of people literally jumping of their apartment windows because of the state they were in the depression." | After she said that, I asked, "Was that like that for you." She stated, "I was lucky it wasn't rough at first for me." | THIS IS HER ACCOUNT OF THE TIME.
49: "It was all a hard time there were some happy times mixed in. There was never a long amount of happiness though" | Her family, now my family owned a hardware store, a wallpaper store and a couple hotels and motels. They lost it all. She said, "My father would use one thing to pay off another and the process just repeated until we had nothing but a house. No Cars just a little bus that came up our street that we paid a nickel to ride. There was only one family that had a car on my street." "Then came the boarders", she said, "We had the oddest bunch. They did what they gave us what we needed for what we gave them. All we needed was MONEY." There is a lot more that I can say but it won't all fit on the page! | This is the sad parts!
