Thanksgiving 1955. Daddy and Hamp co-owned a cottonpicker and had to get their cotton picked and to the gin so they could make extra money by hiring themselves out to pick cotton for other farmers. The cotton they raised paid the bills for the year and the extra cotton picking jobs were profit. So, Mom and Fritz cooked the turkey and all the trimmings and we took the food out to where they were picking the cotton and had our Thanksgiving at the end of the cotton row. Times were hard and we didn't have much but we were all happy and had much to be thankful for. This was in Buckeye where Hamp and Fritz lived. Bill was stationed in Phoenix and he and Elaine had been married almost a year. It must have been a warm day as nobody had a sweater on.
