Stories

Elmer  Drolte was my grandfather, he was married to Lillion lewis.  The Couple had two children James, and my mother Virginia.  When I was growing up I had the privilage of spending a lot of time with my gradparents.  One summer after he quit farming, we were walking and he said Wally were going to have a tree problem here.  He knew with larger machinery the corners of the fields could not be kept up.  He was sure right,35 years later I cleaned up nthe tree problem he talked about.  I will always remember that walk.

Elmer and Lillion Drolte were my grandparents.  I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with them.    My grandfather had a schedule that could wear a teenager out.  We were up by 6:00am checking the lines in the river that he and his friends set.  Then we went fishing in his pond or another he leased.  We came home for lunch, and cleaned the fish we caught.  Then in afternoon we would make a trip to Huchinson KS or pretty Praiere KS.  Then start all over again. One day I was sick and my gradmother told  Elmer he's mine tonight.  She loved to play Gin Rummy and I spent the evening playing cards with her.  We always ended the day watching Johnny Carson.  My gradfather loved seven-up, he would often get a bottle and pour it into a couple of juice glasses.  The pop tasted a lot beeter back then.
