Irma and Honey (Susan)

The two were nearly inseparable growing up. Honey was promoted to the same grade as Irma in the second grade, which encouraged their being "connected at the hip." Honey used to laughingly tell me about how, in high school, they used to walk down Main Street of Scobey, arms slung around the other's neck, and giggle their way down the street - one foot in the gutter and one on the sidewalk. It still made her laugh all those years later. What made her laugh? The rolled eyes of the shop keepers: "There go the Crum girls..."

And then there was the time that Honey and Irma, also in high school, were hot and wanted more than anything a breath of fresh, cool air. A hard thing to find in the summer in Scobey. So they climbed to the top of the water tower in the middle of the night. Their poor mother, Ingrid, had to come and whisper as loud as she could so they could hear her but not loud enough for the neighbors to hear: "You two get down here! RIGHT NOW! You'll break your necks!"

Here come the two Crum girls.
