I's Wide Open

By: ycd0108, 11:47 PM GMT on March 15, 2014

Leavin' in the mornin' for a couple of weeks.
(Loud cheers off)
I will be able to peek in now and then on the Samgal, Tloml's Toshiba or some other terminal so don't you be postin' nothin' about weather, global warming, politics or religion here or I'll have to push that dreaded Ignore button and the touch screen does not recognize a signal from most of my calloused fingers - I have to use a pinky.
Comments are always welcome.
I 'll be back in this chair in early April with bells on and if I thought it would help at all I'd tell you to behave---

"Whitey"

By: ycd0108, 2:54 AM GMT on March 09, 2014

This photo is date stamped 1973. I think I might have helped put the fencing in the tree line, right background, many years before that - my first paid employment.
When his older brothers (my father included) went "Overseas" during WW 11 Whitey was stuck looking after the family farm.
Though he did a fair job of it and acquired many adjoining properties including the fields in this photo, he was actually an artist and a thinker according to my memories.
Showed me how to split wooden stakes to tighten the fencing, told me to read the bible but not to take it too literally and put up with me busting equipment trying to drive a tractor as if it was a race car.
When I found this picture in a frame during this day's "clean-up, sort and throw out" project I almost tossed it in the burn pile.
