Memories

Dewey's parents first home in Kansas was a lean-to dug in the side of a hill with a roof attached. Later they buld a sod house and used the lean-to as a pig pen. Dewey and Elsie were both born in Kansas and since they were born in the first house, the other children always kidded Dewey that he had been born in a pig-pen.
