    I'm not that old but my dad would be just shy of 90 if he were still here.

    He was a genuine okie, born dirt poor near Stigler, OK, the youngest of 10 kids. Some of my aunts and uncles attended grade school on the nearby Indian nation.

    I grew up listening to all kinds of okie tales from aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins and so on. As a kid I used to catfish with my okie relatives, bird, coon and rabbit hunt too.

    The snipes were pretty elusive though for some reason.

    Love it Bill but every time I go to a fest I use an outhouse, much better than the one we had on the farm in 1956, but it is a little more updated version of the same thing with better seats. I still carry my own toilet tissue though, mostly to wipe the lid before I sit on it......Jetspray

    Yes, the model A my dad had started with a hand crank. I was really upset when he sold it.

    Son, go up on the roof and turn the TV antenna. I'll yell when it's good.

    when I was a teenager, my mother asked me if I read the book, "twenty steps to the outhouse,"
    by Willie makit, narrated by Hopey does, pictures by Bettie Don't?
