A CENTURY – It seems like a long time to the outside world, but to the enclosed group of Chaneys – it skipped by rather quickly. But don’t get the idea it was all fun – it wasn’t. Don’t get the idea it was all tough – it wasn’t. But we, as a family, seemed to have the facility of making fun into fun, and “tough” into fun…it all added up to a century.
NEVER was it easy – but we had what it took to make it appear easy – when actually it never was.
