6. Little Squirts


  • In honor of MaryJane’s father, no farmgirl should abide a squeaky door. Walk around your house and give each door and hinge a good oiling.
  • Oil the chains to any bikes your family owns.
  • Make sure all metal garden tools have been oiled before being stored for the winter or off-season.


  • Sometimes a door squeaks even after it has been oiled, so with a screwdriver, sandpaper and a level, fix any stubborn doors you might have so all your doors swing freely and close easily. Make sure all locks are in good working order.


  • Set up a bike repair day in your neighborhood and show the neighborhood kids how to properly oil and maintain their bikes and tricycles.
