Easter Bunnies

Contributor: timothygcross Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

Janyce Maxfield Harrison 380 East 4380 North, Provo, Utah Story related and recorded 22 September 2013 When I was about ten years old, my aunt—my mother’s sister Belle Bockman, who was a Christian Scientist—came to visit. While she was there, about three days, each day I would leave home and go to my cousin Glen’s house, several acres away. Glen was just two months older than I. My aunt Belle said to Mother, “It’s not good for a boy and girl to spend that much time together.” So every day, when I came back from Glen’s, Mother seemed agitated and wanted to know what I had been doing there. I would always answer, “Oh, not much.” On Easter Sunday I came forward with two little Easter bunnies, which I gave to my younger sisters as an Easter present. Then I said to Mother, “This is what I have been doing. I was helping Glen plow the fields. I would ride the horse and he would have the plow behind and plow the fields. For helping him, he gave me these two bunnies.” Mother said, “Oh, I shouldn’t have listened to Belle. Will you please forgive me?” My sisters were so happy with the bunnies.

Our trip to Florence

Contributor: timothygcross Created: 9 months ago Updated: 9 months ago

When I was about ten years old or so, my Grandmother Juliaetta Bateman Jensen invited me to sit in her literature class. In that way I learned about Greek mythology, Dante’s Divine Comedy, and other wonderful things. My future mother-in-law, Edith Roberts Maxfield, was also in the class. She went home and told her family about the things she had learned. Later, Janyce and I were in Les Houches, France, for a summer course on black holes. We determined to see if we could get to Florence, Dante’s home and a center of Renaissance art, because we both were enamored of it because of my grandmother’s description. We investigated bus and train schedules, found we could get there by way of the Mont Blanc tunnel, and spent two wonderful days exploring the city we had heard so much about.

Life timeline of Edith Roberts

1900
Edith Roberts was born on 16 Jun 1900
Edith Roberts was 17 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.

Edith Roberts was 57 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
