That is lucky. I have had 2; an elbow and a toe. It is so painful that I am glad I didn't break a larger bone.

Looks like it was two stories (or 1.5 anyway) - wow, a mansion! :O

It was a tough time, but people did not worry about every little thing the way they do now.

Okay Lucky. I've had two broken bones too...just like Kenju...a toe and an elbow; but I had surgery on my elbow.

Your little home-made home was so cool. I love it.....and would have loved traveling around in it as a kid. I guess your little traveling townhouse wouldn't go over very well today would it?

Joy & Kenju--Sorry about your broken bones. I was too ornery to break anything on me!

Joy & Hattie--No, we didn't worry about the little things. By 1942, my folks had seen the heartbreak of the deaths of two of their kids. Nothing lesser would worry them!

DOT would ban such a contraption as our home-made home from the road, now. At least, they would ban having anyone ride in it--no seat belts. Seat belt installation in vehicles was 20 years into the future, at that point. Hunky Husband's and my first car (a 1955 Plymouth purchased in 1959) had no belts. We were right uptown with the new Rambler that we bought the next year--four seat belts!

Bogie--Just consider your mother to have lived in the world's very first McMansion!
