I went looking in an old photo album, hoping to find a picture of the 8N Ford tractor I mentioned in yesterday's post. Cliff cannot recall ever seeing a picture of that tractor, although I seem to remember seeing a hazy picture (aren't all my old photos hazy?) of Cliff on that tractor, holding our son. If such a picture exists, I didn't find it today.
What I did find was a group of pictures from that time period depicting a very exciting episode of our farm life: We had a pond built!
We swam in it sometimes. We had it stocked with fish, although I don't remember catching anything but tiny sunfish.
Our cost was $666. Oh my goodness, we thought we were in tall cotton.
I'd love to have a pond like it on this place, but the windblown sandy soil on which we live doesn't hold water like that Oak Grove clay did.
