Memories and Stories

Some of my fondest memories of visiting Grandma Lucy and Grandpa Geter's house include: (1) A dipper of fresh spring water from the spring house (2) Grandma Lucy's wonderful home cooked meals (3) Exploring upstairs where I found boxes of books that belonged to Papa and his brother's and sisters; some of which Grandma Lucy allowed me to take home (4) Playing in the corner behind the dining room door with the "wonderful" glass door knob........I remember pretending that this was my own personal doorway to another magical land.

I have no guess as to the year this was taken.
