Mom(Ina) grew up on the Gust Anderson farm, and was very fond of the Meldahls. There is a passage written in the Anderson family history about a certain registered shorthorn bull that jumped a fence into Gust Anderson's pasture. The family history states that Gust was opposed to the shorthorn breed of cattle, and was not amused with this incursion.
