I was thinking that was the oldest daughter, there's a bunch of kids in that picture. Mom sure didn't get much time off.

7 kids-I assume the second story, with 5 bedrooms and 4 bathroooms is out of frame in the picture.

Seriously though, those were some tight quarters. It's a wonder any more kids got made after the first one or two.

No TV, got to do something. Needed workers for the farm and usually high mortality rate on young ones.

Pretty rare for a sod house to have windows. They seem to be getting by just fine. Simple life.

Scary looking house. Looks like a good rain and it could collapse.


Looking in a mirror is how you see yourself. A photo is how other people see you.

He lost his level board early in the build.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.
