Farmhouse Story Continued

Can you hear the sounds of kids playing in the yard? Baseball or volleyball games, hide n seek, kick the can, and many more~!

Oh by the way, this is Pete's childhood home, oh the stories he could tell being the middle child of 12~ 7 boys and 5 girls. Shhhh~ Don't tell him I told you all this story, ok lol~!

The old saying boys will be boys is true~ Pete and his brother found a book of matches, a bunch of sticks--rags and built a fire under the front porch~ his mom could smell the smoke and came running out of the house to investigate.

They heard her coming and knew there gooses were cooked. In major trouble. Trying to put out the fire, as best they could, choking from the smoke as well. I asked Pete why he and his brother started the fire, his reply, facination with fire and flames~ bet alot of us feel the same way~ When we all gather his mom still tells that story.

When Pete and I were married we removed the old porch, sad to see her go since many a child played hide n seek beneath there, great napping place for the family dog as well~ Well nuff said about some of the farm stories. Don't want to bore anyone.

Hi Tanya-found your blog thru P&R- looks like you just started and looks promising! Love to read about farm life! My dh used to set fires in the woods by the creek-one day he couldn't get one put out so he had to run and get his mom to help-the secret was out then! She laughs about it now. And his Dad finally discovered where all his kerosene and gas was disappearing to! lol Hope to see more from you-I'll add you to my blogroll!
