CHILDHOOD ACTIVITIES
He was athletic but not an athlete. There were nerds, musicians, social clusters. Black students seemed to be always in one area of lockers. One can read different things from that (locker story). Ran track one year, but not much time with chores, study, meals, bed, chores, school. Chores included field work, livestock. Sunday afternoons were free. Played ball, rode horses.
CHILDHOOD WORK
Usually one child milked the same cows all the time. Rode work horses. Story of a sorrel mare. Used horses with the plow. Bought first rubber-tired tractor, a Case, around 1949. Had steel-wheeled one before that but mostly used horses. Three to four teams. Later only three. Later, down to two and then one as more equipment acquired. Mostly Percheron cross-breeds which are durable, able to stand the heat, adapted to field work, & not heavy.
