Gallavanting

Aunt Olla and I headed to Lake Park yesterday morning to visit her schoolkid Eileen and her husband Harold. Eileen had a big spread prepared, and Olla was in fine form, visiting for several hours about old times.

On the way to Lake Park, we took the back roads east of Ulen. This was the area where Olla taught school in the 1930s. There wasn't a single grove of trees which Olla didn't remember. She even remembered where there used to be farmsteads in what are now open fields.
