She most enjoyed getting up in the morning, and playing make believe, by going out and covering her "hens." She made nests in the ground, putting a bit of straw in the nest, and then put in little stones, and put a big stone on top. That was her hen! She would do this every morning to see if there were any chicks!

She tells of not having shoes, and stepping on what she called "prickers." They had such strong barbs on them, that you couldn't pull them out without a tool!
