Memories of Early Day Farm Living

December 12, 1959, Oshkosh Daily Northwestern
It's always nice to come across a reminiscence like this, as it dates back to the late 19th/early 20th century.  I cannot imagine walking 12 miles one way to Menasha with a wooden yoke over my neck, buckets of berries dangling on either side.  But such was our forebearers' lot in life.

    That ain't nuthin'! I told my grand daughter that back in the 1950s I walked 2 miles through the snow to school and back and uphill in both directions.
