So sorry to hear of the death of my first cousin, George. I remember him well as being the oldest of the boys and on my visits early on to the homestead, he always made my visit interesting, explaining livestock and crops as he worked hard for my Uncle Carl and Aunt Mary Ann. I remember in particular one instance when he put me on their horse, the horse took off with me on it, heading for the barn and stopped suddenly at a fence and I went ass over tincups. That was my first and last riding lesson! Another instance, cousin George got me up at 4:30 in the morning and said we were going squirrel hunting. He told me it was a good day for hunting since it was damp and the squirrels couldn't hea...r you coming. I took the first shot and missed and George said watch him go to the other side of the tree so we went to the other side and sure enough he did and George took the deciding shot. Aunt Mary Ann sure knew how to cook squirrel. I had a great experience that time, especially being a city boy - hunting, swimming in the salt lake and learning about farm life.Read more
