Yea, I know how you feel. My grandparents never owned a farm of there own, but always sharecropped with someone. The last farm they were on was from 1955 to 1970. My greatest memories of kid were the first 7 year of my life and the last 7 they were on that old place. The house was a old 2 story kit home from Sears with the only bath upstairs. an old floor furnace for heat and there was 80 acres of irrigated and 160 dryland grass. granddad had 12 sows and 10 cows. grandma had some chickens and they both worked from daylight to dark. My cousin told me awhile back that my granddad was the only one she knew that could divide a 10 oz. bottle of 7 up between 6 kids and we all thought we had just won a million dollars. He farmed with a 41 Farmall M which I still own to this day. an H and an 39 allis b he bought in 1945 for 450.00. The son of the man that owned the farm told me just a couple years ago that my granddad and his dad never had one ill word about or with each other. that made me feel good to hear but never doubted it one second as that was the kind of man my grandfather was. He had to leave the farm in fall of 1970 due to health and he was 67 years old. He passed away three years later and my dad his passed away 4 month later at age of 42 with cancer. Lost them both within 4 months. and as a teenager and young adult, I use to enjoy driving by the old place, but so many different owners and changes, it just is not the same. The house is gone and a modular sets in its place. all little out buildings, single car garage is all gone. the pole shed for cows that my grandfather and my uncle, who died in a car wreck at age 24, built is tore down and all the tin and posts set in a big pile up on the 320 dray pasture. The only thing that remains there now that was there in the fall of 1970 is the 1000 bushel 14 foot dia. grainery. I hate to say it but it is so sad to drive out by the place any more that I just do not go. Just typing this will bring tears to my eyes, so I know what you and others have and are going thru. RIP Wilbur S Losey 1903-1973. Gone but never forgotten.
