Relationship: Quote: “Dad: “It’s supposed to be soup.” Me: Dad: “It tasted a bit watery, so I kept adding thickener. I put in some corn and peas.” Me: Dad: [pulling wallet from his back pocket] “Call for pizza. I’ll get rid of this.”” (61) Significant/Realization: Melinda and her dad have relationship but it gone to the point where she doesn’t even respond to the simplest questions her dad asks.

I had a talent for fabricating random meals, but I was not in the mood to whip up anything amazing. Nevertheless, I still decided to make a special sauce to go along with my frozen food that I placed in the toaster. I approached the walk-in pantry, where my brother was scavenging for some type of snack, and I searched for ingredients to make the sauce. Acting in an annoying manner by violently tugging at the sleeve of my brand new Diesel shirt and begging me to make him food at the same time, my brother was hindering the process of finding component for the sauce. Shunning my ears from my brother’s voice, I grabbed hot sauce as the first ingredient, which was in a massive container that my father brought home earlier in the week.
Monograph I: Charles Evans Whittaker On February 22, 1901, future Supreme Court justice Charles Evans Whittaker was born near Troy, Kansas. At the age of 16 pain struck Charles, due to the loss of his mother forcing him to quit high school and submerge himself to a full-time farm work. By describing this difficult stage of his life Whittaker commented to the Senate Judiciary Committee many years later: "I rode a pony to school through six miles of mud night and morning for about a year and a half. When my mother died, it broke my heart; she died on my birthday, 1917. I felt I couldn't go on and I quit high school.

Once it was obvious the Germans were not going to attack, you are able to stand down. You can now go eat breakfast, which was usually half a dozen biscuits and a can of Tickler's Plum and Apple Jam and a fresh cup of coffee. During this time, then men gossip and read old newspapers. After breakfast, your platoon commander inspects your platoon and then orders you to either do work detail, do sentry duty, or to bring wire from the rear trenches. In the late afternoon, you return to your dugout and eat more biscuits, cans of bully beef, Machonochie's stew, and drink tea or water.
I remember hearing about a train accident when I was little. The barrier didn’t work right and so the guy didn’t even think to check if a train was coming and just went around it anyway, and right when he did the opposite side barrier went down and he was trapped and killed on impact. I don’t want to ever be in that type of situation where I’m defenseless, so I plan on heeding the flashing lights whenever their on and doing my best to follow all the precautions that come with railroad safety. Some people might think that they can go faster than the train but after watching that video and realizing how fast trains are really going I’m pretty sure that nine times out of ten the train is faster. I’m happy that this chapter has outlined these precautions for me to follow, I already feel safer with them and I haven’t even really used them yet but I definitely plan to.

During the Black Hawk War, a brief series of skirmishes between American militia and Native Americans in and around Illinois.
The journey from New York to Chicago were we are settled now was filled with anticipation. My father was worrisome that he would not find work right away however, a man on the train told him about work in the meat packinghouses there. The Days were long ten hours or more, and the pay was little for the hard work, only three hundred and twenty five dollars a year. For that reason, my mother and I worked piecework for a local clothing manufacturer. She brought the work home and we sewed by hand well into the night at times to make quota.
I brought him a biscuit and water. He said he was tired and weak and as he left with the chicken turned to me and said, thank you, mam. Later my neighbors criticized me for giving him that biscuit. I said I didn't care if he was a rebel or not. He's still somebody's child.
He had made my own journey through life possible. Last year my family had to make some hard finachal desions and The Hatchery was sold. The buildings that my grandfather and his brother built together many years ago have been all knocked down. My family home is now just a pile of dirt. Yet the old cracked and patch road is still there and at the end still sits an old white Iron
