What chores did you have growing up?

I split kindling and filled the wood box. 

I tiered the wood up in the barn and basement.

- Dad

I had to go get the cows. I would be scared going through the woods.

I had to fill the wood box. I didn't think I would ever get that done every night.

Three Disney memories from my childhood -

1. "Snow White" was my first movie in a theatre. My sister was with me in Dartmouth.

2. I used to sing and perform to Disney records in the living room. There was an old microphone in the drawer of the coffee table and I would sing into it in front of the large mirror over the couch.

3. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights.
