FIo shows off her handiwork in the garden. It's her job to keep out the rodents and other furry four-legged critters, large and small. Dog and human, Dawn horticulturalist Manuel Boehmer, have been known to sleep in a tent together while on guard for produce thieves, like bears, during summer-harvest weeks. New growth for the Dawn Gardens includes an assort- ment of grapevines provided by Bill McClintic and Lisa French. Vines include caber- net, pinot noir, syrah and oth- er winery favorites. The small patch started last year (not shown) survived the winter cold snap with temperatures several degrees below zero.

We have been in business since 2003 and every year we hear the same thing, "We saw your ad in the Plumas/Lassen Connection Phone Book." Our "local" phone book advertising has been one of the best investments for our business that we continue to make. With our ad, we can reach both Plumas and Lassen counties, plus the sur- rounding areas. Having our advertising consultant Cheri Mclntire available at the Chester Progressive to take care of our phone book, newspaper advertising needs as well as our printing needs is an added advantage. 287 Lawrence Street, Quincy, CA 283-0800 135 Main Street, Chester, CA 258-3115 Greenville, CA 258-3115 i~::~Westwood PinePress EO.

If If you have read my recent column, then you will better understand where I am going today. One of the last sen- tences I wrote was "Here is where We started clawing our way out of the Depres- sion!" As we chugged our way into Edmond, Okla., we saw a small empty house for rent. I'm not sure of what arrange- ments were made but we stayed in it for a week or two. I remember we cleaned' the place up, so perhaps that was to pay the rent for that time. We all had had enough of living in the back of that old Model T truck. We had running city water and a nice little outhouse in the backyard. Ah! Luxury! Plus, there was a little memory serves, I think they received one dollar for the work. They also took on a similar job somewhere else, but I wasn't in on that. I now ask myself: why is my mind so clear on this, which was so very many years ago when it hardly re- members yesterday? If you think children don't remem- ber things from years past, think again! Anyway, there was some work in this little town, albeit very little pay! After searching through town (on foot to save gas), we found a larger house on a big corner lot. It was $7 per month! It was just across the street from the Oklahoma State College football field. This is where I grew up and started school.

Mother started doing washing and ironing for $1 -- yes, both for $1. Dad was working at anything he could find and going hunting when he found no work. My older brother did yard work for 10 or 15 cents per yard. Altogether we were working hard to get ahead enough to go to California. I learned to scrape and prepare animal skins from dad's hunting. I have written of all this just to familiarize you with depression. In my next writ- ing, I will explain how we, as a family, made our way out of the real Depression! If this is boring to you, then I say, 'You should have lived it," then you would truly know what boring really is. Somehow, dad bargained for an old ' Ghe y and a two-wheeled trailer. This was the best c uld do for our trip to heaven, or Cali- fornia if you prefer. I won't bore you with the preparations any further, nor will the trip be highly de- tailed. We will get right to our end ofthe Depression. Maybe some will see what we need to do to get out of this one. Need help If it's ing we can' ll find somemm wao can. Calif. Lic. #453927 (530) 283-2035
