Water Carried Up Hill: A Sense of Place and Past, © 2007

Dedicated to the Congregation of First United Methodist Church, Past, Present and Future, in Marshall, Missouri. The following material is excerpted with permission from Missouri Mules by Emmet Dyer.
 
 "I never went hungry but I delayed a lot of meals," said Emmet with his droll sense of humor. "I count myself fortunate. We had hams in the smokehouse, and we raised chickens. We had lots of fried chicken." Emmet is a great storyteller who has an anecdote for any subject that arises. Storytelling is a tradition in the Dyer family; his brother I. G. was known for his humorous tales. "We were all good talkers," Emmet said with a smile.
