living in Death Valley

Did you know that I used to live in Death Valley?
Yep, a loooonnnng time ago.
I have wonderful memories of living there.

My Dad was a foreman of a talc mine.  I loved it when he would take a hammer and break open an ugly rock to find sparkly crystals inside (geodes).  
Panning for gold was fun too, but we mostly got fools gold.

This mine looks closed, but we sometimes got to put on helmets and 
go down in the mines to see Dad.

Home sweet home.  I loved that we had a momma cat we named "Momma cat" (original) who lived under our trailer.  She always seemed to have kittens around.  
They were great to push around in my baby buggy.
