There was a lady from Ga asking of old things like Brer Rabbit and old stuff like music.I see this site has something along those lines.If it sticks here.

The older folks know a good deal that became obsolete with time.The younger think the older are less educated.But the younger would find themselves lost in the world of the grandparents.

Hey Clod,

Thanks for that page, as young as I am, I do know quite a few of those questions, and the answers. I thank you for that page. :) I saw the Dust bowl page, what a whopper of a storm. Couldn't imagine. I saw there are quite a few Kellys on here so I think I will start putting Ga on the end of my name. Hope alls well on the homefront. I just loved hearing about everybodys past grandparents stories, didn't you? Hated that some didn't have a history, but I guess they still had other good memories.

Yes,Put Ga. on the end so we can tell you two apart.There are a lot of interesting things posted here.I learn a lot here on many subjects.The horse tooth doctor was a new one for me. I didnt even open it for awhile. Then after reading it ,It made sense.I have been kicked severly by horse and the guy who pulls a horse tooth deserves a fair wage in my estimation.It is hard to get answers on the farm growing up.If you ask questions you seldom get serious answers , I guess because they expect you should know already.Those dustbowl days are over I hope.It ruined the life for farmers back then.Many learned to do other things like work in factories.Their children became city folks and forgot where their ancestors came from.

If younger folks were wise, they would learn about things past. I find myself as I get older (I am 35) loving just to talk to my parents about past times, and learning new things from my dad on gardening. I have a big heart for family and home, and I think there is much wisdom in the past generations, and we should listen and learn.

You are correct.My father taught me a lot and told a lot of stories,But they are gone now .As time passes I have run into questions I forgot to ask.Also,The older I get ,The more I learn the value of lessons they tried to teach me that I thought were too old fashioned to get any good education from.It seems that vanity has caused us to loose sight of the real world about us. We are greatly affected by TV today.
