MN: The winters were frigid, and the summers were real hot, because we only had one room, one window, and that's not much of a ventilation to cool off your room. And since there were no shades, it was impossible to cool it off. And then in the wintertime, we weren't used to those cold weathers, and we had to keep the stove burning all night in order to keep us warm. And I guess my mother took care of that. 'Cause I says, when we had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night in that freezing weather, you had to put on your jacket, boots and pants, and hat and gloves, and then march out into that cold weather.
