This is a
collection of stories about my life on the farm in the South.
I wrote these stories in my own words, complete with grammar and
spelling errors the computer couldn’t
figure out how to fix.
you are interested in knowing what it was like to have a life-changing
experience at a young age and grow up on a farm in the late forties,
fifties, and sixties, welcome aboard. Although our lifestyle
and the means to change it were pretty much fixed, at the time,
it was in many ways the same as several other families in the
area. We enjoyed a very happy life without much complaining. The
struggles were an effort to live happily, make the best of what
we had, and try to make the future better.
of the stories are based on my memories as a boy. These
stories are true to the best of my memory and took place between the
years of 1941 and 1965. My motivation for this effort
was based on the idea that if I didn’t write these stories,
my children and grandchildren would never know about some of
the events that took place during the time of my early years
on this earth.
also needed to point out to the youth that any and all education
that can be obtained is a good thing, but higher education is
not absolutely necessary to be successful in this great country. Basic
education, common sense, and dedication to a goal will get you.where
you want to be in most cases.
I Hope You Enjoy Reading The Book
As Much As I Enjoyed Writing It!
