12. New Furniture


Out of the scrap lumber, my dad and brothers made all our furniture and wooden "getas" for our feet. They nailed tin can lids, that they got from the mess hall, over holes in the barrack floors and walls to keep out scorpions, mice, and bugs. We also rolled newspapers to fill the cracks between the wall boards to try to keep the sand out.
