Personal Notes:
Grandma Clara and Grandpa Olaf Bjorhus were our third set of Grandparents. They were actually neighbors of ours when we lived on the farm in Wannaska, Mn. I don't know what age I was when I found out they were not really our Grandparents, but the trauma was about the same as when I found out there wasn't a Santa Claus. They used to come to our house and play Rook (a card game) and Superman (a board game with marbles) which was also known as something else, when you were losing. When we went to Grandpa and Grandma's farm we would run over to the water pump, which always had a community dipper and get a drink of water. It was the coldest "bestest" water you could ever imagine drinking. Grandma had a box of toys we just loved. In the box was an old plastic cheese grater, old buttons in galore, wooden thread spools, string for arranging the spools into the form of a necklace, some old marbles...everything a kid could ever hope for. Those days will never be forgotten. We loved them and I know they loved us too!
