|The dear little hands - I miss them so
All through the day, wher'er I go
All through the night, how lonely it seems
For no little hands wakes me out of my dreams
I miss them all through the weary hours -
Day-time or night, wher'er I go -
The dear little hands - I miss them so.

Katie & Florence bought while their husbands were in the Army (WWII). I remember when the war ended, the girls
stuffed old cloths to make a dummy like Hitler and strapped it on the back of the Crosley. We rode around downtown
blowing the horn and celebrating the victory. Mary's husband Carl was also in the war.
