Personal Notes:
Mom and Dad had a good neighbor that came up from Kansas City when Bobbi was born to take care of us, and she would take a roaster pan and fill it with chicken broth and made longer strips and lay them in a single row on the bottom of the pan and Daddy called them "Dog Juice Harp's" We loved them.
