Family Memories from Marla Aud Haller: Aunt Lottie knew that I loved her blackberry cobbler, so she always "surprised" me with it when I visited. She also got the impression that I liked corn pops for breakfast, so from then on she would make sure that she had some when I stayed with her. She would always take me out to the backroom behind the kitchen to show me what she had in her chest freezer and it was always full of goodies. We would go and get the eggs that had been laid and I remember that sometimes she would just collect them in her apron by pulling up the bottom to create a basket. I loved to smap beans with her on the front stoop and of course we were all impressed by how she could ring a chicken's neck. Then there was the time when a chicken ran around the yard-headless! And then, there was her driving. Oh my! She went about 10 miles an hour and had a hard time staying on the road and then would giggle and laugh about it. She was always laughing.
Uncle Ed let us run wild and we loved it. He would let me drive the tractor down to get the mail. We picked blackberries together for Aunt Lottie's cobbler. He knew I loved the baby chicks and one visit he sent me to one of the warming sheds for a surprise. The shed was full of peeping, soft chicks and I sat down on the floor in the middle of the shed with them all over me and around me-what a feeling!
He had quite an appetite for a small man and would completely clean his plate. I mean completely! He would wipe up everything with a piece of bread and he would even eat the bones! He prided himself on that!
One night when Alan and I were staying there, Uncle Ed told us a sow was going to deliver her piglets during the night and if we were real quiet, we could watch. In the middle of the night, there we sat with our flashlights watching and waiting and sure enough, she gave birth to a lot of baby pigs and then she grossed us out by eating the after birth. This was more than we were prepared for! The next moning Aunt Lottie couldn't understand why we didn't have an appetite!
