  • That's eerie Shep, I had a very similiar upbringing on a very similiar place from age six to age twelve. Imagination running wild in a small hardwood forest, stream, first bass caught (the pond), Jersey cow, horseback cowboys (on a bay mare), and more; wow!

    I for one wish you had gone on, and on. It would likely have stirred even more wonderful memories for me. Thanks for your story, and as they say, thanks for the memories.

    Oh yea, I went to a one room schoolhouse, and a little community church each just up the road in different directions, but walking distance to each. I believe you are too young to have experienced the former, but it is likely the latter was within your experience.

  • Thanks again OKR -

    You are correct that I did not get the opportunity to attend a one-room schoolhouse ... But the place we went to church services (when we went) was an old one-room schoolhouse not far from the farm. It no longer houses worship services and has been retro-fitted by locals to its original "school house" motif - including furniture and the big wood burning stove. Some of the folks who were raised thereabouts use it from time to time for reunions, dinners, etc.

    I appreciate your words and the fact that you keep reading The Shepherd's Heart.

    And enjoy the memories, my friend, just as I have.
