Where I was born, Part I - - - Out in the Nebraska country
I'm sorry to those who suffered through the whole thing, but I had do that to preserve my sanity. I am teaching Sunday school again this Sunday and now I will have time to better prepare.
We are studying Ecclesiastes 9:1 through 11:6 this week.
thanks for the tour of your childhood home, my ganny had a couch just like that one, and I loved to sleep, on it as a child :)
and she had a outhouse too, she didn't get a indoor bathroom until the early 70's
and now I live in her house , and the outhouse ,well the outershell of it is still standing :)
oh and thanks for stopping by,
the fog tree, is one I took one winter day , it was a pain to drive in , but it was Awesome to walk in , I took a few pictures of the fog that day, and I added the border to it!
take care and have agreat day! :)

Enjoy those memories Jim!
Dad would paint it regularly, whether it needed it or not. He shingled it quite a few times too.
Mom and Dad moved in when they were married, in December of 1932.
It was Grandpa's farm, but Dad and Mom began to farm it on shares after their marriage.
Everyone raised corn and oats at that time, soybeans weren't thought of, maybe even not heard of back then.
They fed the corn, beans, and hay to the animals. Dad sold cream to the creamery, Mom sold the eggs to the produce house.
Cattle, pigs and hogs were sold for butchering. We ate what we could and sold the rest. We also had a huge vegetable garden for our veggie source.
We were terribly poor [$$].
i forgot to tell you before!
Go on you know you love it really.
Take care xx
It sits right in the middle of his farm, in a cornfield and someone strange living there would disrupt things.
Thanks for the switch in tags. I appreciate that although I may not get to it until Sunday night or Monday.
Are we to assume we are looking at the back of the house?
Can't wait for the other two parts.
Eventually we sealed shut the door we are seeing. Sealing it kept out a lot of cold drafts in the winter.
I'm glad your Dad doesn't need to see that anymore. It wouldn't sit well would it.
