Personal Notes:
Grammy Wheeler always made different types of squares. Pineapple, blueberry, raisin and strawberry. She would make the squares and then put the pan on the shelf in her pantry down by the Revere Pans hanging on the wall. If too many fingers snitched the squares, she would move them to the top of the refridgerator next to where Grandad kept his teeth in a jar. She used to call him to the supper table with "Put your teeth in". A phrase still used in our family to announce supper.
