The first part of the story explains how Virgilas ancestors from Europe all arrived at that small region called Woodland, Indiana. Emphasis is on what was going on in that part of each oneas world to cause them to migrate to this country and eventually to that spot in Indiana. Wars, religious intolerance, and decisions by the various kings or queens were the driving forces that caused so many to leave their homelands and look for better conditions. Life on a farm during the Great Depression and World War II is described in some detail. The emotional devastation upon learning of the deaths of two brothers in that war took a heavy toll on the Mochel Family. The second part deals with the many varied experiences of Virgil and Marian as they traveled their life-journey together, up to the present time.Since our pure bred dogs didna#39;t pan out too well, we acquired a part-German Shepherd, part-Collie puppy we named ... In 1980 Carol, our youngest, graduated from high school, but not before she picked out a new puppy for us to take care of.
