My Grandpa was a hard headed old Scotsman that tought Me many things without ever lettin on that He was. I recall one time when We was going to hang a wooden gate a long ways from the barn. When We got there Grampa lowed as how He'd forgot tha brace and bit. H e gathered up some dead tree limbs ,took out a match,never occured to Me that a man as never smoked would be toten a match.
Next thing He came up with a iron rod that just happened ta be tha right size,lit tha fire,heated tha iron and made tha holes.Never let on that it was a lesson in common sense make do.
Too, I can remember the realy old fellers sittin round talkin about tha "civil"war. I now kick my butt and have for many years for not paying attention.
Poor dumb kids that We be,if it happened befor We hatched We pay no heed. What a pity. Some had fought in the battle of Wilson creek. I do remember They'd say tha creek ran blood red for several days till all tha dead were hauled out.
Last week I plowed,raked,dragged and sowed and last Sunday I found a realy nice small spear point layin on top of tha ground. Now thats a tie to the past.
