When Alexander was young and after his mother passed away, he wanted a

chocolate cake and decided to make one using a huge amount of soda. When it

exploded in the oven, he never tried it again!

He and Lydia worked very hard raising their 8 children. Besides working on the

railroad, for extra money he'd go trapping in the winter until wee hours of the morning

--snowing or not. At night, he'd tan the hides in the bunkhouse. Before getting married,

he enjoyed boxing in different towns. He loved a good boxing match--either listening to

them on the radio or watching them on T.V. Alexander enjoyed "jigging" and playing the

harmonica. ("Jigging" is like tap dancing without the taps.) He learned from gypsies

when he was out working on his own. His children's fondest memories are of all of them

gathered together singing, playing the guitar and harmonica while their dad jigged to

"Turkey In The Straw". They were their own entertainment and their neighbors, too!
