My grandfather never called my grandmother anything but "Jo"

She was an excellent seamstress and made most of my mother's dresses and her own. she hand quilted some beautiful quilts, and I am the proud owner of my favorite with a beautiful Iris pattern. She was an artist. We have several of her watercolor paintings of landscapes, and I own one of a windmill done when she was 13 years old. She was a farm wife, and cooked and baked in and on a wood stove. how she kept that temp just right for the best biscuits and baked goodies I will never know. I remember being asked to go down to the cellar and get a jar of jelly or jam. I did not like the cellar! There were bugs and stuff down there, but I braved it just the same because my Grandmother's homemade jams & jellies were AWESOME!!! She always had a huge garden and canned all kinds of good stuff for winter. Me my brother and sister used to love to go stay with my grandparents on their dairy farm in the summer months. We made homemade ice cream, usually strawberry, or some type of wild berry, with an old rock salt hand churn maker, all taking turns. There was never a bathroom in my grandparents house, just an outhouse down the hill...We would brush our teeth and spit off the porch, and "wash up" on the porch with a basin...Those were the "good ole days"
