Pops graduated from North Island, San Diego, and got his first job in Chicago flying for McDonald. His flying boat, "Alice", was located at the Serve Yacht Harbor. I am sure we only had $65 cash and rented two rooms on Central Park.
I rode with pops a few days after we were married, that was June, 1915. It was no time at all when Pops was sent to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, to carry passengers there. We rented a room from a Mrs. Burton and Pops, oh so carefully, carried passengers at $15 and $20 per each.
One day he asked if I wanted to fly over to the YMCA camp with him. There were about 100 people on the dock who wanted to shake my hand and who proclaimed what a brave woman I was to fly.
Then one day we were invited to breakfast at one of the BIG houses there. All I can remember is that a butler waited on us, something new to me. I had had lots of waiters, but never a butler.
