It was very family-like in Greendale. Everybody knew everybody else. We were just coming out of the depression. No one had any money. But we had a lot of friends. And a lot of good times. We had picnics on the porch! Everybody brought what they could to eat and drink and we put it all together.

I don't think there's a better place to grow up; the community as a whole, going to the drugstore, walking to the grocery store for your parents and standing in line. If you needed thirty-five centers you only had thirty-four, the person behind you would say, "Hey, Jimmy, here's a penny." Those were the kinds of things that would happen.
