Contributor: jjmays Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

I was named after grandma and always called her Grandma Letta. My favorite memory is sitting in Aunt Elsie and Grandma's trailer and looking at all of the thing grandma had in her china cabinet. I figured out how the touch her cabinet just right to make a doll in a rocking chair rock but nothing else.

Hey Pa, There's a Goat on The Roof

Contributor: jjmays Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years ago

As a young girl, my Dad was transferred with his job to Honolulu, Hawaii. As my Grandmother Meyer's health was beginning to decline, her family decided it would be best if she were to come to Hawaii during the winter months where the climate was milder. I remember how much my Grandmother enjoyed playing games. We spent many hours playing "Big Casina", "Cribbage", and my sisters new game, "Hey Pa, There's a Goat on the Roof". I loved to play games with her because she was so simple-hearted - and she enjoyed so fully the games we played. I was still in elementary school and loved to rush home from school to play a game with Grandma. She slept on a twin bed at our house and we would spread out whichever game we were playing on the quilted bedspread and begin playing. In the card games, "Big Casina" and "Cribbage" I remember when she held a good hand she would rock back and exclaim, "Oh, I held right!" That usually meant I was going to lose that hand. My sister, Judy LaRean Hess, had received a new game as a birthday present called, "Hey Pa, There's a Goat on the Roof". This became our favorite game to play with Grandma. The object of the game was that everyone was a goat. We would roll the dice and go through different places on the farm, the corn field, the hay stack, the pig pen in order to make your way to the barn. On different numbers rolled the farmer would either be standing on the tree stump in front of the barn or he would be inside the barn. The idea of the game was to roll the dice in such a fashion that you jumped on the stump and onto the barn roof while the farmer was inside the barn. If you were the first person to reach the barn roof you would exclaim, "Hey Pa, there's a goat on the roof!" Grandma would laugh and laugh, every time. She was like a little kid. I still enjoy visiting that old memory of Grandma yelling "Hey Pa, there's a goat on the roof!"

Life timeline of Letta Murphy Meyer

1907
Letta Murphy Meyer was born on 26 Jan 1907
Letta Murphy Meyer was 10 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.
Letta Murphy Meyer was 21 years old when Walt Disney character Mickey Mouse premieres in his first cartoon, "Plane Crazy". Walter Elias Disney was an American entrepreneur, animator, voice actor and film producer. A pioneer of the American animation industry, he introduced several developments in the production of cartoons. As a film producer, Disney holds the record for most Academy Awards earned by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations. He was presented with two Golden Globe Special Achievement Awards and an Emmy Award, among other honors. Several of his films are included in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
Letta Murphy Meyer was 33 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Letta Murphy Meyer was 51 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.
Letta Murphy Meyer was 57 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.

Letta Murphy Meyer was 82 years old when The tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 10.8 million US gallons (260,000 bbl; 41,000 m3) of oil into Prince William Sound, Alaska, causing one of the most devastating man-made maritime environmental disasters. A tanker is a ship designed to transport or store liquids or gases in bulk. Major types of tankship include the oil tanker, the chemical tanker, and gas carrier.
