This cuckoo clock belonged to Grandpa Carter and hung in the living room near his recliner and smoke stand. It is still working order and is proudly displayed in my living room where its rhythmic ticking gives a cozy feel and the cuckoos keep us aware of the time.
Mom used to have the bird glaases displayed in our kitchen window.

Our milk came in glass bottles with colorful foil lids...this is a vintage bottle from the Maplehurst Dairy, Indianapolis, Indiana. The cream was on the top and had to be shaken into the milk or could be removed for coffee or cooking purposes.
A family friend, Ted Tucker, was our milkman for many years. He drove for Maplehurst Dairy out of Indianapolis. His wife,Dutch, was a half-sister to my aunt, Ella May Carter who lived a few doors down from us.

The milkman carried the glass bottles of milk in a wire basket such as this...the products were then put into the insulated milk box sitting on the porch. Our dairy was Maplehurst Dairy out of Indianapolis.

We were given an old upright piano and I used the John Thompson books for beginning students to learn to play a few songs, but never had lessons. The piano was in very bad disrepair and was later made into end tables!

This was similar to the bassinette that newborns were placed in during their first few weeks in the family. The bed was often kept in the parent's bedroom; once this was outgrown the infant went into a crib of its own.

When Dad, Mom, and I moved into our new house on Paddock Road, it had no electricity...we used kerosene lamps. There was also no glass in the windows and they were covered over with tar paper. 1948
