My Mom, Ann Michaels, Diane Lungen and during the Mrs. Lungen would sit in front of the gas station knitting and sweaters and blankets for there children while we played. They would gossip abot the two block town as we the Kinder (children )
They would listen with big ears. Occassionally We would interrupt and I withe the big mouth would ask a lot of questions. My Mother would yell and tell me to be quiet. They thought we weren't listening but we were.
Mrs Lungen Senior would teach the younger women how to knit and peanl as well as krochet. Occassionally other people would join them. Thiswas war and my father was in the navy. . Mr Lungeong Sold Cars and owned the gas station. Mrrs. Michaels Was Patty the Cop's Wife.
I played there usually with Paula Blum, who's wanted to sing with my flat voice. How Linda tried to Father was the Postmaster in town and Linda Michels, Patty the Cop's daugther.
We used to pretend to put on plays. We wanted to be actress's. Linda was the really only talented one of the bunch. Did she have a beautiful singing voice. I like to act, but only teach me.one It was hopeless.
