This morning after leaving my daughters place near Walton Rd. and Baldwin Rd. in North Oakland County Michigan, I drove north on Baldwin Rd. passed some old familiar places I had frequented a long time ago when I was only 15 years of age. Being now 82 years past and having been mostly absent during my retirement for the past 20 years or so, I am truly amazed at the changes of lifestyles and "technology" that has taken place here.

Crossing Clarkston Rd, I recalled 67 years ago driving a herd of sheep around that curve following in a 1938 dodge pickup.

This morning it would be impossible in the bumper to bumper traffic that I found myself in.

It was 1939 that I as a young lad moved on to a large farm including that road intersection. My father moved the family there from the dust bowl of the mid west seeking a better life in a more progressive world. There he became a sheepherder of the farms flock.

At that time the farm was owned by the JL HUdson Merchantile Co and . . . Read More..

My daughter pstalker was always was sticking her finger in something. We were up north in that farm. When we bought it there was a basement that was half full and flooded of water. So I drained it all with a pump. And bought this cream separator. Doug was out there churning it and goofing off. pstalker stuck her finger in it. And it took off a chunk off the end of her finger.

On another occasion she climbed a tree and fell and got spiked on her leg someplace (she still has a scar today)

One time my brother was riding his bike after going fishing and he got a fish-hook stuck in his calf while riding home. I remember going up to the hospital over by the movie theater and I can vividly remember a rustly and wormy hook gouged in his calf. IT WAS SICK!

I was a big nerd in junior high school, and I desperately wanted to "fit in".

In an attempt to make friends with the cool kids, I decided to tell everyone that I was going to be on Star Search.

It worked for a while...  But the lie started to spread like wild fire.  Even the principal knew about "Star Search".  One day he saw me in the hallway and congratulated me for getting on the show.  I knew that I would, eventually, be found out.

One day, one of my "new" friends came to the house.  She was talking to my brother.  She said, "Aren't you proud of your sister for making it on Star Search?"  My brother was confused... He said, "What are you talking about?  Beth's not going to be on Star Search."

I pleaded with her.  "Please don't tell anyone."  She promised that she wouldn't say anything, but I have a feeling she told some people.

So it's 4th grade, great age to climb trees right? I loved climbing trees as kid until this day when I went climbing trees with my 4th grade buddy. I was real high up maybe only five feet when I stepped out on a dead branch and snap! There I go falling ass first into a huge patch of prickly pear cactus! OOOOOUUUUUCCCCHHH! My poor loving mother soaked me in the bathtub and picked thorns out my backside for the rest of the day.
