REA; "Woman plunges and scrubs"

Mary Right age 42 Washes her cloths for the first time in two months." We have
nothing we have been traving to my sisters farm to see if she was okay and to
see weather she may have anything we can maybe use. Thankfully she and her
family were not as effected...for now.We used her washer,it was so good to know
that I could now give my kids clean cloths and my sister had enough food for us."
May 26 1932 San Franscio.




Carrie Hillson tends her garden in the Happy Valley settlement."We don't have
much to be happy about but thankfully I still Have one thing I love and that’s
Gardening.With out That I think Life would just be sad.We really got lucky when
we moved here we didn't really think of anything but money.Then we started
seeing This beautiful garden grow."April 6 1934. Dallas Texas.When watching
her I could see how sad she was she had nothing but her husband the tiny
cramped house and this garden. I later learned that her two chilrden were
starved to death because their family really had nothing.When They died Carrie
and her husband moved to get away from it all.




This photograph was taken in 1938, and shows a woman cooking over an old wood
burning stove. At one time, I had a hunting cabin that had an old wood stove like this in
it. I have to say that I really enjoyed the simple elegance of cooking over a wood stove. I
always felt a sense of accomplishment getting a good meal out of the old stove. Now I
will admit, I was always using it in wintertime. The stove put a lot of heat out into the
room, which was nice in winter time, but I imagine the stove would lose some of its
charm if you were using it in the middle of summer.
I always liked simple things like this stove. Today, I think too much technology is being
pushed into too many products, where it is not needed, and is not helpful. Products
become too expensive, too complicated, and unreliable due to overuse of technology,
where it is not needed.
