harlotta, Aunt Lottie, as we fondly called her, was the only one of my grandfather's people I ever met. When I was 4 or 5 I remember her coming to visit us on the farm in Kansas. Sometimes she would come with my grandmother, Marie, but I seem to remember her being there with out her at times also.
One thing in particular I remember about her is one snowy winter day she was sitting in the rocking chair looking out the window at the sheep my dad raised and commented that she would love to have hair like those sheep. At that time her hair was thin and grey and not so plentiful.
We loved Aunt Lottie, and she had a particular fondness for my oldest sister Charline. She was sometime a little rough around the edges for an old lady and she said what was on her mind. I was about 10 when our family went on vaction and we spent the night at Aunt Lotties in Valentine, Nebraska. My parents had rented a camper and the boys slept in the camper, and the girls in the station wagon. Aunt Lottie took us downstair for some reason, to show us something, I suppose, and she told Charline to come with her, she wanted to show her something, and I remember I wanted to see too, and she said "no there's a big mean bulldog in here!"
One thing we always laugh about is that when Aunt Lottie was on the phone she would say:"hang on a minute I have to fart!" We always thought that was so funny because if she didn't tell you you would never have know.
I have a receipe that has been handed down in the family know as Aunt Lottie's sour cream cake and it is oh so good. She tells you to dump the ingredients into a pan and give it a couple of stirs. I'm thinking that she never took anything too very seriously.
She is fondly remembered by my mother and father.
