Where do I begin –
first – my blog yesterday on –
“Stand by me ”
“ELDRED ” drew over 700 views !
That is amazing from a little town with just 800 population !
I grew up in this little town –
at Halloween time – almost every house –
I knew who they were and their names !
I helped my child hood friend –
Brent Wood – deliver papers –
That was when he bought his go cart and we would ride around town !
I was truly amazed yesterday –
I would check in every once in a while –
And I realized right away –
A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE READING AND SHARING !
The last I counted –
it had been shared 15 times !
Back when I was growing up –
this was the sentiment of growing up here
At least that was my impression .
All us kids –
from each end of town and all the streets in between –
It was a real friendship –
heading for the park to play TACKLE FOOTBALL –
Choosing up sides –
Then – the creek by the park –
with all those trails into the woods toward Park Avenue –
When I was young –
I did not go far into the woods –
Instead – just playing in the water with one eye
always on those ferns and trees !
And I guess –
that the feeling still exists today judging by the response –
From people who left years ago –
yet still consider this home.
I am grateful –
THANK YOU !
I have many more memories and I shall attempt to put them into a blog.
I always wanted to write a book –
My wife Sherry suggested I go back to blogging –
That way –
we could save them all in one place –
have a history so to speak –
A place where future generations can go and read and see pictures.
