I caucused. Weird how that word looks, in print, so much like cursing.
I also got the neighbor Lady’s garden tilled up. I’m not sure why they are planting peach trees in the garden edges, but I suppose, them being farmers and all, there is good reason. I’m just not in on the knowledge.
Makes tilling a pain. Before he died, Renter put in RR ties. His Missus sad the ws going to plant strawberries in the section timbered off. Then he planted the peach trees on the garden side rather than the grassy side.
“Course, the Lady doesn’t want to disturb the trees and is hesitant to pull out the timbers of the strawberry patch. Can’t say I blame her. The two were married for fifty four years and had five kids. They have twelve or thirteen grandkids – one of their boys fathered quads.
That was fun to watch. The Quads father had to call all the kids in this winter (their high school last year) and explained to them he really couldn’t send all the kids to College. It was just too much. Especially as the family had seven kids. The quads cam late and last.
The father told the kids that he would do the best he could and that was the first year of college, or maybe a trade school of some sort, just until the kids could get some further education and perhaps a waiting period.
All kids got together and three accepted the first year of college offer, the others made arrangements for trade schools. Two signed on with a company that offered advanced courses for the workers, a couple of others eyed mechanics schools with Harey Davidson and another company.
That’s a pretty put together family. Wish all those kids luck.
