When growing up as a small child I was introduced to feather beds. The first time I slept in one I thought, that I was falling down deep in a hole. I went o stay all night with my grandparents one weekend and the bed they put me in had a feather bed mattress to sleep on and another for the cover. I never like the feather bed since that day. I also heard them tell stories about straw beds. Do you have any stories about these early day mattresses?
