In the wall`s of this old house,I found this dusty old journal….
A young lad wrote that his dad built this house in the year 1903.
He was eight years old at that time,and so happy about the new house.
They had been living in a sod house since he was born…..
His Mom & Dad had made the Land Run of 89 to get this land.
They lived in a covered wagon for Nine month`s,
They had to wait till there was enough moisture in the ground to make the sod house,and there was fields to plant and livestock to take care of,and fences to put up.
There just wasn`t time to put up a house as grand as this one.And there was a shortage of money too. ….
In the last pages of this journal he wrote that his parents had passed away from the fever that came through a few years back,…and there was a War going on over seas,…and his country was calling him to go fight.
The year was 1917 and the U.S. was just getting into World War I…..
The last words he wrote were,…I`m going to miss this home,
Hope it`s still here when I get back….
This story may not be true,…..
It`s just thoughts in my mind….JohnDSmith
