19-year-old Helena Muffly wrote exactly 100 years ago today:
Monday, April 6, 1914: Alma went home this morning, and it seems so lonesome without her. Hauled the stuffings out of a closet this afternoon, and then hauled them back, which means that I cleaned it.
Her middle-aged granddaughter’s comments 100 years later:
Alma Derr was Grandma’s cousin who came to visit the previous Saturday. She lived near the small town of Ottawa in nearby Montour County.
I think I got Grandma’s genes when it comes to cleaning closets!
I also haul the “stuffings” out . . . and then put them back.
