    Things sure have come a long way over the years! The early settlers and even those up till the 1960's didn't have nearly the equipment at their disposal that we have available these days!

    I watched all 23 minutes of that video and that was very interesting stuff! I had uncles who were in the C.C.C. back in the 50's and they always told me some interesting stories! Man how the times have changed!

    My great aunt and great uncle (brother and sister) lived together after aunts hubby died. She wanted to make a garden in a different spot than where granddad had it before they took over the old home place. He told her to go for it if thats what she wanted. He said I picked up rocks for 17 cents a day and I'm not doing it anymore. Arkansas has plenty of rocks so I can see where he was coming from.

    I bought this place and I think the rocks are breeding. I am still picking them up after 2 years.

    Now I believe that one of those guys in the humbolt portion of this video was my great uncle Jimmy. Of course you cant see him very well cause he dosnt look right at ya, but its him. My aunt told me he was in probably 6 or 7 of these type films that were created for the school system. He was mostly a logger but did whatever needed doing as did most everyone else. Those folks are true pioniers and know the true meaning of working for a living.

    Thanks, Boss.

    My Father was in the CCC many years ago. He had some funnies to tell, too.
    He helped build the roads in Pikeville, TN up to Fall Creek Falls for one.

    Merry Christmas to you and Sis!
