After my uncle, who is three months younger than me, and I got back from helping put hay in the barn, grandpa would give us a Budweiser to split. It was kept in the milk cooler and was ice cold. We were around ten at the time.

HMMmmmm.
Pick and eat wild-berries from the vine
Pick wild mushrooms
Skin anything that walks, crawls, slithers or flies
Catching crayfish in the crick
Smoking pokeweed pipes as a kid
Running around barefoot all summer
Being able to name dang near any bird or animal I see
Knowing how to read the stars for navigation
Rock hopping in the crick
Rafting down the crick using machetes to cut our poles
Using a real bamboo pole to go cane pole fishin


Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure

I remember my grandpa, dad, uncles and any male visitors sitting around the cooler drinking a beer after a day's work. I was given a swallow but I never did develop a liking for it.

Refreshments from our own still.
My first kiss, she stole my dip with her tongue.
Wine outta pretty much anything.
Driving at 10-years old, but until I was 24 years old, couldn't figure out how to drive an automatic shift.
First time at a sit-down restaurant, I was 18 and had my first soda-pop.

Milked 110 head of Holsteins every morning before school. All the boys and girls were farm kids in my grammar school. Didn't realize all girls did not smell like cows until I went to a regional high school where there were some town girls!

Got a 91 Honda 300. Still like Budweiser. Going catfishing next week. Listen to Merle. Belong to a deer club, a sporting clay club, and a rifle and pistol club.

No bumper stickers though.

Helped butcher and put up 2500 chickens
Put up several barns full of hay
Fish and Gig Frogs on the Mississippi River day and night.
Washed clothes and bathed in a Crick and a tin washtub.


Every kid needs a Dog and a Curmudgeon.

Remember Bowe Bergdahl, the traitor.
