Visiting Friends And Family

In those days, we would visit friends and relatives on the weekends. Saturday night always saw either us getting together with friends, at their house or ours. The parents would have a couple of beers and play cards all night while us kids played in another room or outside if the weather permitted.

If we couldn’t find anything else to do, we would go shopping on Saturday night.

A big night would mean we drove all the way to Batesville, shopped and stopped at grandma and grandpa Wonnings on the way home. It would often be nine o’clock before we got there so the evening could run late.

Before anyone would realize it, grandma would be stirring in the kitchen, frying a chicken and all the fixins, it would many times be midnight before we ate.
