Playtime on the farm was at times exciting, and at times downright dangerous. Bertha shares with us stories of her childhood and the mischief she and her brother Clyde experienced. Here are three of those stories.

"Clyde, eight, decided to make a bicycle using two barrel heads for wheels. He worked in the old shop all day and finally I decided to go out and see if it was all set to ride yet. But, I fell down and started to cry. Mother came hurrying along to see what was the matter and Clyde said, 'She was swearing, that's why she got hurt!' I answered back, I was not! I was singing Jesus Christ, the Son of God".
