Memories of the "Dust Bowl"

'Your program on "Dust Bowl" is very interesting.  Since I was raised on a farm 600 miles to east of Boise City, on the Missouri, Kansas border.  When I would arrive home from school about 4 pm (walking the one and half mile), Mother would tell me "get the bucket and go gather the eggs." The dust was so thick and dark, the chickens are already on the roost.  We never saw the sun set on those days!!'
