[Aunt China & Uncle Harv]

Description: This is one of Joe Clark, HBSS, famous pictures. Joe and Bernice stayed with Aunt China and Uncle Harve on their Honeymoon. Aunt China told Bernice when it was time for bed, "Let me know if there is anything you need and I can tell you how to get along without it." This picture is also in Joe Clark, HBSS, Book "Back Home". Poem from the Back Home book. PEOPLE IN THE EARLY DAYS People in the early days Had such quaint and ancient ways; They’d hardly ever take a bath Or follow in the beaten path. They fought to win the wild, wild West And every man done his best To clear the land and make it free And safe to live for you and me. From ignorance they emigrated And them became educated, And then before they realized Courtly, proud and educated. Thanks to all the things they done, Thanks to each and everyone, You and me can take a bath And follow in the beaten path.
