Memories of Childhood

IT SEEMS THE OLDER I GET THE MORE I REFLECT ON MY YOUTH .SEEMS TO ME TIMES WERE VERY CARE FREE,NOT HAVING ALL THE TURMOIL WE HAVE IN THE WORLD AS WE DO TODAY,LIFE WAS SO MUCH SIMPLER,LIFE WAS GOOD,HARD BUT GOOD.I WAS BORN TO A FAMILY FARM IN 1946 AFTER MY DAD RETURNED ROM WW11.WE MILKED ABOUT 8 COWS HAD CHICKENS ETC.NO ELECTRICITY,2 DRAFT HORSES HANDLED THE FARM WORK, DAN &DAISEY.ONE OF THE THINGS THAT REMINDS ME OF THOSE DAYS WAS THE TIME I RAN GRAMPS OUT THE END OF THE HAY MOW AND DUMPED HIM IN THE MANURE PILE.GRAMPS WAS NOT TO HAPPY WITH ME.WE HAD A DRIVE THRU BARN TO PULL THE HAY WAGON THRU,THEN WE WOULD PULL THE HAY UP TO THE MOW WITH THE HAY FORKS I KNOW MANY OF YOU CAN RELATE TO THIS JOB.THE ONLY TROUBLE WITH THIS OPPERATION WAS THAT THE HORSES HAD TO PULL THE HAY FORK UP PARALELL.WITH THE BARN SO YOU COULD NOT SEE THE MOW.WELL GRANDPA WAS RIDDING THE HAY FORK UP WITH THE FIRST LOAD OF HAY AND I WAS DRIVING THE HORSES NOT A GOOD DAY FOR GRANDPA NEEDLESS TO SAY IT DID NOT TAKE MY DAD AND GRAMPA TO LONG TO PUT A MARKER AT THE END OF THE PULL SO I KNEW WHERE TO STOP THE HORSES. THIS MEMORY STICKS IN MY MIND AS IF IT WERE YESTERDAY.ITS JUST ONE OF MY BOYHOOD MEMEORIES I STLL LAUGH AT WHEN I RECALL THAT DAY. HAVE A GREAT NEW YEAR EVERYONE AND CHARISH YOUR PAST, LIFE IS FULL OF GOOD MEMERORIES
