Living in the Good 'Ol Days was a lot of work.

It's kind of neat seeing all those ducks walking in a straight row one behind another....kind of like something you would see in a fairy tale.

This film could have been made right here, except:


---The milk separator was hand powered.

---The washing machine was gas powered.

---The grinding wheel was foot powered.

---It was apple orchards instead of oranges(?)

---Ground is too steep for irrigation.

---Dances were every Saturday night at the Crossroads.


Brought back some fun, and not so fun (think outhouse in January), memories.

Thanks Barnrope for that video. It brought back a lot of memories of my grandparents when they were living. Everything but the orchard reminded me of them. I now own their farm and continue to farm it. 4th generation. Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Mike

And NO a/c!!!!!! The Southland can be very oppressive without it....or most anywhere really.....unless you live in WY.

Not one fat farmer in the bunch. Thanks to all that hard labor. I see quite a few fat farmers around here.
