  1. Thanks for including the date. I couldn’t make it out. I am guessing that Mahlon was living in that house that had a bed extended down from the ceiling and all the rooms were painted beautiful colors. I think it was Lake Latawana (Not sure how to spell it.)Mary Jane commented on the bed on this web site before. What I remember Was how he painted the whole house and the beautiful colors he used. I was also impressed with the bed on the ceiling.

  2. By this time we were living in a house at C-67. The first house only had two bedrooms so I hung a bed from the ceiling to accommodate us all. C-67 had more room.

    Salina k is probably Salina Kansas…
