Yeah, I agree altho at times with the "cut rate" deal they gave on
"hail-season ended" in stock shingles @ $100/sq and then some $8000 for
the paint as just a couple of the bills, I understood why dad had let it go.
The kicker is the oldest building on the place is the old grain elevator
which was built first as two separate buildings on either side of the
driveway; they lived in the west half and the east served as the barn
while they dug the basement for the house and got it "roofed over" with
the first floor subfloor. They then moved over there while it was
finished (ca 1916). They first moved out from further east in KS in
1914; at that time the ground had not yet been broken out of the natvie
sod. We still do have a small pasture that has never been broken out;
it still shows signs of original buffalo wallows and their paths; the
cattle, of course, continued to follow them.
