I like it when Papa tells stories about the olden days. There were no radios or TVs, instead families would sing around pianos. Rather than cars, everybody rode horses. The townspeople even had to make their own bread and bricks because the nearest city was far away. Although it was long ago, Papa still remembers those days with a smile.
