Three Score and Ten the Introduction,|
Well here we go, After 50 years I am going to take another attempt at writing. The first time was the Palmer writers correspondence school in 1969. The writing will be not a book that will be written with the idea of being published, But will be a writing of thoughts unencumbered by possible publishing and monetary gain. This writing will be a hybrid of Journal and Reminisce. It is important to me that the writings are my true thoughts at the time, not influenced by any factor. The writing will try to explain how a 70 year old white, male USA citizen now relates to today's world. Is every oldest generation lost in their own world, that they aged into? What do I see, and feel as I age farther. I know I am not normal as in what this world today would consider normal. But I hope I am in the ball park writing the thoughts of a 70 year old. I hope for you to learn to know who I am, As I search for Who I am at 70+ This work will carry on until I am no longer able to think or write. This will be done on a nearly daily writing interwoven with a life's reminiscing. This writing has been in the planning for 10 plus years. and I have now made it to this starting point. This writing is dedicated to My Wife The Kitten, My family, My grand children, Lukas, Levi, Luis, Lydia and Sonora Pearl. I thank you God that you have allowed me to have your Three Score and Ten Time.
It has been awhile since I have written, Not by choice. I really have the desire to write but the fingers and mind are weak. But to day I have a little time, So I will write. This spring summer has been a whirl wind. We are now emptying the garden. There is a lot of empty space. We pulled the melons and cabbage today. The garden down here in the south of Wisconsin was decent. The dryness and some what above normal heat did not cause lack of production. We still have somethings out but the garden is made and closing for 2021.
Now up north is another story. We dug the potatoes or I should say what there was of potatoes, only about one bushel. There were lot's of problems there, A late planting due to wetness, Potato sets over sprouted, Wetness though the season, Deer eating them off more then once, and Potato beetles. But we are thankful for what there was and we will use them wisely. I remain optimistic that next year will be better.
Monday I leave for a short three day fishing trip with my brothers. it looks like my brothers from Texas and Missouri will attend. I have not seen them in a couple of years, it will be nice to see them. I brought the boat down and will pick up one brother on Monday then come back for the boat and leave for the fishing destination. There will be six of us this year. We have been doing a fishing trip yearly for about 30 years. Now the task is to catch more fish then the brothers, not an easy task.
Tomorrow the wife and I are hoping to take in a Flea Market as customers, not as fenders. We like to do that once in awhile. It is interesting and hopefully rewarding to view other peoples sales technique. I always hope to learn something new. There is so much yet to learn and the days grow short.
I am getting sleepy and we still need to go to the grocery and get supplies. Lukas and Levi did you get the cows scraped down? How I miss those Grandkids and the cows. Have a Blessed Week, Please
