And That's the Way it Was

By Roland Schomberg 

The stories for "...And That's the Way it Was" were inspired by Schomberg’s parents' life on their Sheboygan County family farm.  Though not a literary masterpiece, the hand-written two-page chronicle of events, sprinkled with bits of his own philosophy, provided most revealing and interesting reading for the author. Reflecting on his part in the family history, he resolved to leave a similar legacy for his children and their offspring, so that they might be enlightened and amused by my narratives of life during Schomberg’s boyhood in Wisconsin.
