Apple II Interest

When I was about 6 years old, my great grandma bought me an Apple IIc computer.  I learned how to use the word processor software called "AppleWorks" & a game that came on the Apple At Play diskette called "Space Quarks".  Files were saved on a built-in or secondary external 5.25" floppy drive.  AppleWorks required two diskettes to operate, a Startup Disk booted the computer to ProDOS and made it ready to run the program.  Once the Apple IIc computer was booted with the AppleWorks Startup Disk, it would ask for the AppleWorks Program Disk.
