Children, why did not you stay at home, in this weather!

Going to the mill at night

“Not even bread was good during the war. Well, it all so… Since we had a small farm, we did have some grain. Well, the crops had to be surrendered, but of course, everyone kept something for themselves. And thus they saved something extra. At night we had to bring the grain to the mill, on a bicycle when it was dark, and the miller immediately exchanged this for flour for us and we rode back home with the flour at night.”
