|THE PLOT THICKENS||
I got my subject with the help of my dad. I decided to go ahead and write about animals. I learned that my dad had dogs and even found a stray dog and brought him home on his bike. He walked the bike up Farmington Rd hill with the dog in his basket! This bike cost $9 back then also. My grandmother who was born in 1896 rode a horse to school, let him graze in the field while she was in class, then got back on him to ride him home! Wow have the times changed! What would kids today do in a world like that? Gripe about not having a cell phone probably!! I was happy to learn more about my dad's family since I had no idea about the things he told me. My grandfather worked in a coal mine, walked to work 4 miles and made 50 cents a day. That was voluntary from my dad's story telling. I just hope I can tackle this assignment and come out with good comments from my instructor. This will be the challenging one!
