"Sunday was always the big day of the week. In summer and winter, the family piled into a two-seated, two-horse-drawn carriage, or sled whenever it was more appropriate, and drove to Hartford City for service at the Lutheran Church. After church service, we frequently went to Aunt Mary's for dinner. My parents took quantities of fresh vegetables, farm produce, farm-made butter, eggs, live chickens, and fruit to my aunt and uncle. In winter, the trip was usually made in a bobsled. Mother would heat flat irons, bricks, or soapstones and wrap themin a cloth to serve as foot warmers during the long, cold, trip to church. Aunt Mary was a good cook, and it seemed as if she always had dinner ready when we arrived. Soon after dinner, we would start home.The seven-mile trip over poor roads in the horse-drawn vehicle was time consuming as well as tiresome."
