Kountry Life Memories

Childhood Farm Memories
As a city kid I was sent to my Granddaddy's farm for the whole of summer vacations. It was a 600 acre farm that was planted out mostly to cotton,soybeans,and sugar cane in Southwest Louisiana.The day always started at 5;00AM coffee,followed by getting eggs outta the henhouse,then my Granny's hearty breakfast.The farm work was hard and the summer days seemed to last for endless hours. Granddad was a good Blacksmith and had his shop right in the big barn next to the farmhouse.I don't remember how many hours I worked the manual bellows for his forge but I sure worked up a hardy sweat doing it.Thing I remember most tho was the gentleness of my Granddad.....he never raised voice nor hand to me and I sure learned a lot from him.The memories are good but the pain of losing him has never faded.
