Addie, Belle, Betty, And Coral Farmer's Wife Blocks

I'm a slow mover on these blocks, but I shall persevere! Only 92 blocks to go!

#1 - Addie
"When I left town I traded my electric washer for two cows. I have no 
modern conveniences...still I am happier than I ever have been before."
~ Mrs. H. S. L., Washington, October 1930

# 13 - Belle
"We observe the old custom of having our whole family together for Christmas dinner. 
Last year there were nearly forty of us. Each family brought a basket lunch with service 
for its own members. No dirty dishes to mar the womenfolks' good time"
~ Merry Christmas, Nebraska, December 1935

#14 - Betty
"We feel that our lives have been greatly enriched and that our twenty years 
together have been much sweeter because of our music."
~ Music Maker, North Carolina, March 1933

#24 - Coral
"They are just 'little whiles' in the midst of busy hours..." But long after other things are 
forgotten, they'll look back and remember those 'little whiles' with Mother."
~ For More Fun, Wisconsin, October 1936

The sweet short stories in this book are so precious.
