Too late for me for the first two... But once I retire and get the boy on his own (within sight now.. Just another 7 or 8 years!! ) I will be returning back to a rural existance and out of these *&%$@!! suburbs!!... It's funny, when I was a kid I use to here the trains and the see the airplanes overhead and say to myself "One of these days I'll travel and see what's out in the World and find my place!!"... Well now I've done that... and ALL I want to do is get back to the farm and do what I want to do and get back to my farm roots!!
Now I am showing my age. I miss haying with horse drawn equipment and delivering milk door to door in a horse drawn wagon. My grand Dad did not like modern gas equipment. Late 50's the good old days

I remember, as small child in the early fifties, ice being delivered to my grandmother in a horse drawn wagon. Milk ws still delivered, but in a refrigerated truck.

My mother, until her dying day still called her refrigerator "the icebox."'

I remember my Mom and Dad's Kodak Brownie camera. Heck, most of our family and friends pics were taken with one. Colored pics (Black AND white)

I remember going to Ramstein to hop on a C-130 to go make our jumps. I was stationed in Idar-Oberstein as a Parachute Rigger 11/71 till 4/73. I still miss those days now and then!

When I was posted to Rhein.Main in 63 and 64, we had a squadron of C124 Globemasters there as a rotational "tenant" squadron.

They were used almost exclusively by the army units nearby for jump training.

I happen to really love these big old "ugly" planes like this (I think they're beautiful).

We have an aviation museum nearby. There's a couple of "carcasses" on the property I love to just sit and look at sometimes. They're only about half complete.

I love the A10, but it may soon be a piece of history. They just sound good when they go screaming overhead ripping off the 30mm guns.
