I used to hear my Pa say that he was a jack-of-all-trades, but master of none. My Pa could do a lot of stuff. He knew a lot about agriculture...that's why he went to college. Yes, my Pa went to college...even though he only went to grade school up to eighth grade. He quit school to work on the farm. I don't condone kids quitting school, but back in the 30's and 40's, it was acceptable. Pa wasn't lazy either. Back when Pa was a boy, he did most of the farming.
Because of Pa's love for agriculture, he learned to do a lot of things. He trained and sold horses, raised and harvested crops, and raised all kinds of animals. He took many to market. (I spent many hours as a child at the stockyards watching animals go through the sale ring) Pa also sold Mormon feeds. That was before I was born, but now I understand now why he knew everyone in the country.
I've got my Pa's genes. This is why I have many interests in life...it's because of my Pa.
I've got a desire to draw lately. My favorite subject, of course, is horses. My favorite medium is pencil. You will see them show up on my art page. If your interested in one, just let me know.
Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 "I know that nothing is better for them than to rejoice and to do good in their lives, and also that every man should eat and drink and enjoy the good of all his labor - it is the gift of God."
