IT'S NINETY IN THE SHADE
When the morning chores are finished, I like turning out the cows, And with them turning out my troubles, Out across the fields to browse.
Then I strike off toward the woodlot, Mock the bobwhite as I go, Watch the eagle hunting dinner, Hear the chickens talking low.
As the hover in the cover, That the mother hen has made, When the simmer sun gets busy And it's ninety in the shade.

ACTIVE IN THE INTEREST OF SHAMBAUGH:
Ermal L. WILSON was a active member of the Shambaugh Fire Department. They were using a "Bucket brigade" as late as 1913, when this was replaced by a push car of hose and soda acid tank. The first meeting of the Board of Directors of the "Shambaugh Community Fire Protection Association" was convened informally on 25 January, 1949 at the Shambaugh Town Hall, with the following members present: Ermal LeROY WILSON, C. V. PERRY, EDWARD WILLIAM FULK, HARVE BROWN, FRANK SNIVELY, and BYARD HOOK. Discussion centered over what type of truck to purchase. A new 1948 International Fire Truck with one set of LuVerne fire apparatus with 100 feet of hose and one Hale auxiliary pump was purchased for $5,600. The money was raised for this purchase by contributions and pledges by the town of Shambaugh and surrounding community. GAIL MILLER was elected Fire Chief. The new truck was housed in FLOYD HUGHES' building until a new building was built at the west end of the Town Hall. Material for the fire station was purchased from Richardson Lumber Co. at a 10% discount - the bill coming to $832.93. In April of 1950 the Shambaugh Fire Department was recognized by the State of Iowa. WENDELL McCLARNON served as Fire Chief 1953 to 1965, DONALD McINTYRE served 1966 to 1967. A second fire truck, a 1949 Ford, was purchased in 1952 to complete the facilities. SOURCE: Pages from the Past Vol. I, No. 4, pg. 13 December, 1976

THE SHAMBAUGH TELEPHONE COMPANY: As one of the oldest independent exchanges in the Southwest Iowa closed its doors on October 31, 1959. They started in 1902 with 5 lines, and as many as 300 patrons were on the lines, the number being cut to nearly 50 by the gradual drop in patronage. Members were assessed $3.00 each year for the upkeep of the lines, which were taken care of by Ermal LeROY WILSON. The Company first operated with a switchboard in ART RICHARDSONS Lumber Yard. Mrs. ORA NICHOLAS was one of the first operators. The last operator being Mrs. BEVERLY RUSSELL. Ermal & Vera'S phone number was two shorts and one long ring, from ORA.

MY REMINISCENCES OF SUMMERS SPENT ON THE DUNCAN FARM:
Many of his grandchildren would spend the entire summer on the DUNCAN farm, and he enriched all of their lives by his humor and fair practices.
We would load up the cream and/or eggs into the pick-up truck every Saturday morning for our weekly trip into Shambaugh to sell, at the Creamery station operated by Paul BEVELRAGE and Mrs. Ora NICHOLS (Who also was the telephone operator for many years).
Saturday night was a great time in Shambaugh, after we would sell our cream and eggs, and purchase our weekly supply of groceries and visit with neighbors, some times a band concert was held in the early part of the evening with about 20 local men playing in the band led by MAJOR LANDERS and Dr. SELLERS. When it became dark enough a free picture show would be held with the picture reflected on a sheet.
On some evenings we would visit with Vern & Delna McCLARNON who owned and operated the Phillips 66 Gas Station, right on 71 Hwy. South end of Shambaugh (this also was the Shambaugh Bus Stop). They had a little house right next to the Station, where Ermal & Vera, Vern & Delna would play a few hands of Canasta or Hearts, Vern would sure get mad when a car came into the station which he would have to service - just when Ermal and he were in a in run of suits.
Ermal L. WILSON also traded with Horce & Ruth RICHARDSON'S "HILLTOP" Station, northwest side of Shambaugh on Hwy 71, which consisted of Gas Station and General Store, ran by Cecil NEVIUS, Frank SNIVELY, and Wendal McCLARON. What comes to my mind is when we would stop here to talk "about the weather" my Grandfather Ermal would by us a 10 bottle of Coke and a nickel bag of peanuts which he showed us how to dump the peanuts in to the Coke bottle (It would fuz up & out the bottle) so we could drink the Coke and eat the peanuts at the same time.
Ermal & Vera raised Hogs, and a few cattle for meat supply, he would have Floyd PIERSON, butcher the stock and stored it at the "HILLTOP LOCKER" owned by Byard HOOK & Donald RICHARDSON, operated by Walter HOLSTE, Derrell KENT. Byard & Donald also owned the "HILLTOP MOTEL" located right next to the Locker, which was operated by Donald RICHARDSON family. I never did want to sleep over night in that Motel.
Vera (Duncan) WILSON was an immaculate housekeeper, her house, clothes, and person was always clean and fresh, even-though I never saw her do a lick of housework. Apparently she had completed seVeral hours of work before this grandson ever woke-up in the morning.
Some of my sweetest memories are bounded up in Grandma Vera's cooking. Her recipes are family treasures. Recipes are sometimes in someone's mind and handed down by watching and doing. Certain recipes are specialties with individual and remembered only by them. This is true of Grandma Vera's Angel Food Cake, (which she baked in a "Lamb" mold for every Grandchild's Birthday) Date filled pin-wheel cookies, (which were Grandpa Ermal's favorite) Chocolate cake, (which was baked on a sheet pan with Chocolate icing, a "Texas Sheet Cake") Fried Chicken (which was normally our Sunday dinner after Church service). I could go on and on, nothing tasted like it did at Grandma's house and this is why.....

 GRANDMOTHER'S RECIPIES
  Grandma told me long ago, "Bread's no good unless you add some lovin' to the dough."
"And when your baking pies" she said, "A pinch of faith and trust, If added to the shortening, makes a flaky, tender crust."
  "Compassion by the spoonful in the batter of a cake, makes it come out light and fluffy, and the finest you can make."
  Now these things can't be purchased in the store across the way, Grandma kept them in her heart and used them everyday.

 WHAT IS A GRANDMA
A Grandmother is a lady who has no children of her own, so she likes other people's little girls and boys.
Grandmas don't have anything to do except be there. They take us for walks and will slow down past pretty leaves and caterpillars. They never say "Hurry up."
Usually they are fat, but not too fat to tie our shoe strings. They wear glasses and funny underwear. They can take their teeth and gums out.
Grandmas don't have to be smart, only answer questions like "why do dogs hate cats" or "how come God isn't married".
Grandmas don't talk "visitors talk" like visitors do, because it is to hard to understand. When they read to us they don't skip words or mind if it is the same story again.
Grandmas say they have good memories, but they can't remember how old they are. They also stuff food down your throat even if you are not hungry.
Grandmas are the only one who can keep you on the telephone, while your favorite television show is on.
Grandma is your mother's mother and your father's mother.

 GRANDMOTHER MEMORIES
How well I remember my Grandmother dear, her love and concern, her warmth and her cheer!
Though her family was large and some far away, each one felt her love in a wonderful way!
How well I remember my Grandmother's eyes, they always inspired us to tell her no lies!
In the planning of fun or the shedding of tears, her eyes mirrored love for us all through the years!
How well I remember my Grandmother's smile, as she came to the door with her usual style!
Her smile said, "Come in"; you are special to me, and its warmth was felt by the whole family!
How well I remember my Grandmother's hands, they so tirelessly met all her family's demand!
Each labor of love was cheerfully done, as her hands worked so hard both in work and fun!
How well I remember my Grandmother's feet, and the speed that she went as she walked down the street!
Though the years between us numbered more than a few, keeping up her pace was all I could do!
Yes, how well I remember my Grandmother dear, and though she's been gone almost a year!
The memories she left will never depart, for her place in our lives will remain in my heart!
