In those days, the market for cattle had bottomed out, selling for about $25.00 per hundred pounds compared with $141. now. But we just made enough to supply our needs. And we had no debt. If Daddy couldn't pay for it we waited until he had saved up enough money for the purchase. So we may not have had everything that we wanted, but we had all we needed without the stress of money worries. Yes, we were poor, but very happy.
