MEET MY BLOG

Every once in awhile, but not too often, I get the urge to put in writing what I think is common sense from Ozarkcounty.

The subjects range from love stories actually written by the lovers to global warming to the birds and bees and DNA.

I think everyone will also be intrigued when they read the actual memoirs written by my wife Alice's mother and father. Her father was born in 1866 so he will give you a first-hand view of the late 19th century in mid-America. Read her mother's memoirs and learn about poor farmer familiies' lives in the early 1900s.

I urge you to peruse the blog subjects on the sidebar to the left and spend some time with me in Ozarkcountry.

OZARK ANCESTORS

Well over 100 years ago, my great-grandfather moved his family from Tennessee to the Missouri Ozark Country. There he built a log church and preached the gospel to the rugged, individualistic hill people.

The church he built still stands and is maintained by his descendants as a memorial to him and to the love of Christ, freedom and high moral standards for which he stood.

One of his sons, my grandfather, likewise preached the gospel of Christ for many decades to those same God-fearing hill folk. Early in the 20th century, my father, born in those beautiful Ozark hills, was raised and taught the meaning of life by his father and by the Father who created the spectacular surroundings. As a child, I frequently heard my father tell stories about the life and country he knew and loved so much. Up until the day he passed away not too long ago, he talked with warmth and a tear in his eye about this Ozark country.

I hope to capture some of that feeling by presenting here some essays of my random thoughts about today's world while using the same common sense so prevalent in the people of those hills of the Ozarks.

The individualism of Ozark hill-country people of olden times is still in the blood and hearts of many of us and we want to nourish and make known to the world that our American freedom of yesteryear still exists today and will be kept alive far into the future.
