for The Diary of Opal Whiteley

house we do live in
  Opal's house is between the singing creek and her grandparent's house.

Opal lives in a very small wooden house with one room divided into two by a quilt. It is also called a lumber shanty

These little houses were moved to different logging camps using the railroad. The entire house was pulled up on railroad cars and moved to the next work camp.

Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus

Opal has given this name to a wood rat who is one of her favorite pets. Opal very often carries Thomas Chatterton Jupiter Zeus whenever she goes visiting or exploring.
