DADDY’S GENEROSITIES

                            When daddy was good, he was really good. Ok, I remember a couple of things that I believe should be told right here. As hard as my dad was, he loved my mom’s parents.  I remember him and my mom’s older brother going in together and purchasing a milking machine.  Now, my grandpa just […]

SUMMERS ON THE FARM

Shooting rabbits, gigging frogs, climbing trees I guess Hiawatha, Kansas was another town where we had two sales.  I remember a friend there by the name of Pricilla.  I spent the night with her a couple of times.  They lived on a farm outside of town and I believe there were 6 kids. Don’t remember […]

Teacher was told off.

Yep, daddy was mad At one point back when we were still without a trailer and back traveling with Brooker Sales Company, dad had a sale in Red Oak, Iowa.  We ended up renting part of an older lady’s house. It was really cold and deep snow outside and by now I could enroll myself […]

Schooling on the Road

Explosion in trailer Hey, Hey, here I am again. I’m really hoping you will continue to follow my blog and I can get better at it. You need to know that my dad was terribly strict and I know some of you will say, “yes, my dad was strict also”.  When dad came home from […]

Okefenokee Swamps

Slave coffins There was one sale in Waycross, Georgia but there was no place to park the trailer.  Daddy finally found a lady that would let us park the trailer on her land pretty far out of town, and it only had water and electricity.  No restrooms but lots of trees.  It was about ¼ […]

Let’s Rodeo!  Not yet, I’ll get into the rodeo part on down the road. The title could let your imagination run wild and everything running through your mind is probably correct. Ok, let’s get serious.  Do you really think you have traveled?  I’m not talking about just to other countries.  I’m talking about, just for […]
