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.

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!

Childhood 2

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.
