Product Description

From the Author

I wrote the story of my experiences growing up on the farm for my children and my grandchildren. I was born in 1928, long before all the modern “conveniences” people have today.
Growing up as I did on a farm is an experience some readers may share with me, but the majority have not had that opportunity, and it is an experience that cannot be in any way duplicated today.
The majority of people today cannot remember when there was no electricity, no TV, no computers, no iPhones, etc., etc.
Our telephone on the farm was a large wooden box which hung on the wall in the living room. We had to turn a crank to ring the bell and then talk to central who would connect us to the telephone of the person or place we wanted to call. The telephone line into town was a wire suspended on telephone poles.
The light we used in the evening was from kerosene lamps. The heat to cook with was usually from wood, or possibly kerosene. Heat for the inside of the house was from a wood or coal burning stove. Cars traveled on dirt or gravel roads and this included many national highways. A speed of 50 miles per hour was really fast.
It was a simple, but most enjoyable time of life. We knew all of our neighbors and they all were willing to help one another if help was needed. There was no thought of monetary payment as return help would likely be needed some day. The neighbors also enjoyed each other’s company with card playing parties and pot luck meals.
I thank God for being able to experience how the world has changed in the last 80 years. I believe these years will be considered the best ones that America has ever had, or will have.
I hope you enjoy sharing my memories and learning about how one country boy grew up.
