Ax, that brought back a happy memory. The elderly couple across from my grannies house had a mulberry tree and I was always over there (they encouraged me) and of course would go home stained all over. Thanks, made me smile.

The WWII, interesting--I'd like to see that one--any idea where he was Stationed?

During the time, G.I's could even take a piece of cardboard from a K-ration carton,, write their letter on it, and drop it off--It got delivered, Back to the Staes--postage free.

Keeping up with your Rebel project, Ostrich Saddle-and maker--prime stuff.

I had three uncles in WWII. All made it home alive, Thank goodness, but they have gone on now. One was in the Philipines (sp), and the one that wrote the letter, was in Italy. I'm not sure where my other uncle was stationed, he was a Marine. The other two were in the Army.

Oooh, and what can be run on Kerosene can also be run on methane, should be plenty of that available and close at hand in the overall idea I think? (Hoping a Methane plant using pure, fresh crop grown just for it may smell a tad better than the typical plants that just use all our trash?)

Ax: You reminded me too of childhood days climbing my grandparents mulberry trees and coming down later with purple hands and face. The good times.

Also used to hike around the lake I grew up on to a spot where a nice mulberry tree grew. Got me in trouble a time or two because at that age I sometimes forgot or neglected to tell Mom where I was going only to wander home hours later with purple hands and face.


Getting in the car this morning to drive into work had a large flock of geese flying over high up headed back north. Guess it is officially spring around here.


Jeff:)
