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.

Hello Grandkids and Others
Hello Grands and others, I did get back here, I was wondering if I would. They just do not make the days like they used too. They seem shorter and not because of the time change. It is me. I struggle to get things done. I am clumsy and get tired out faster. But I do get things done eventually. the garden is cleaned out and is now roto tilled for spring. The fall painting is done for now, It is never really done. I you guys get that yard fence painted this summer. I am sure glad I did not have to do it. We did get the garden screen up with the motion detector operating. Next up rake leaves and put a heat tape on a pipe in the crawl space. We have a crawl space under the kitchen only, but it is a pain. We will weed and trim here as long as we can and try to get a leg up for this coming spring. In the north we have everything buttoned up for the cold months. I will trim some brush when we go back up the middle of the month.
We will see you Lukas and Levi this weekend when we come up. your mother wants to use the grain grinder. I am glad she asked if I had one. It gives me a good reason to come up and see. You guys are pleasant to be around and watch. I weather looks to be rain on the way up, a good day to drive up.
All in all it has been a good season. many things were done. I am hoping that the next years outdoor months will not be as harried. But I say that every year. But next year should be more reasonable. I am tired so Good Night All
