My Uncle John's farm was on one side and Uncle Calvin's was on the other. My cousin Laura did a good job of supplying me with scary stories that were accentuated by the creepy trees surrounding it.Unfortunately, all the trees have been cut down and it is quite barren. We had a January picnic in Iowa at an old cemetery. I haven't done that before.
