Evelyn Dorth's Great Grandparents Flotie Drake Douglas and Jake Douglas memory

A Childhood Memory

I woke up to the smell of bacon and the sounds of the men preparing for a day of long hard work.  I heard the women singing hymns as they rattled the pans on the stove.  I heard the creak of the old oven door, the sound of homemade biscuits.  I peered out the window and watched the soft mist rise as the first rays of sun glinted over the mountain.  I knew I was home.

One of my favorite childhood memories of my great grandmother’s house.  I can smell the bacon and almost taste the honey and biscuits.
