I’m 113, born in 1896 – Minute 1
Well…I’m 113, born September 21, 1896 in Melrose, Minnesota. Moved to Minneapolis in the next year. I remember getting a haircut when I was four years old – you know – I cried like a damn baby there. Then from Minneapolis, my father got a job in De Smet, South Dakota… Engineer. And, uh, in 1901 we moved to De Smet and I went to school the next year – six years old. In the 10th grade I had to quit. Our family broke up.
