Past, present & plans 8-30 -16
Dad rented a small garden area from the Morgan’s, just outside from the suburbs of Lanham, Maryland. Whenever us kids heard we were going to the Morgan’s, we didn’t know if we were in for a good ole country cookout and games or to work in the garden.
This one particular day it was just me and dad going and I figured we were going to work in the dirt. Once we were there, I was given a huge surprise. A tractor.
My first driving experience was on an old Allis-Chalmers tractor. I was sitting on dads lap, while he controlled the peddles. He probably controlled the steering too. I was so proud to be his son.
I think dad paid for our garden spot, by plowing and disking the fields. He might have drank a lot, but he sure did work.
I went to a local Senior Center to get help from the state with my energy bill. While I was there I was given a tour of the place. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and all the activities offered, so I joined free of charge.
Pool tables, gym equipment, dining hall and many more. The ones I just mentioned are free as a member.
Thursday I’m going to help my buddy work on his autobiography, but before that he wants to join the Senior Center.
