Since I bought my first computer about 4 years ago, I’ve digitized all of my pictures.
I had all of my slides put on disks, & made a jig, so I could take pictures of all of my old negatives.
It took me quite awhile.
Now I’d like to show some pictures of my Grandparents farm where I used to spend my summers.
As soon as school was let out, I’d jump on a Greyhound bus for a 200 mile trip to Northwestern Minnesota.
It was during World War II, in the early 1940s. I had two Norwegian bachelor Uncles, & my Grandmother there.
The last time I visited there was in 1985 for one of my Uncles funeral.
I took a walk around the place, & took some last pictures before the farm was sold. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’d like to share some of them with you.
Me, & Lassie!
This is the Old John Deere Model B, that I put many miles on.
The Old Model A Ford is the first car I ever drove.
It doesn’t look too good does it?
Farm House, The people that bought the farm, tore it down.
The Last Horse
The rusty old combine!
An old Plow
Tractor with hay stacker attached.
And last, but not least, the junk pile.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I had to add this picture of My Grandmother, & her Children.
This was taken shortly after my Grandfather passed away in 1948.
My Grandmother was only about 4” 10” tall.
Quite an achievement for such a small lady.
The only one living now, is my Uncle that’s in the center.
This is the about 1500 acre farm in Norway, my Grandmother signed over to her Stepfather, before coming to the USA, at about the age of 15.
It has a Sawmill on it now also. Photo: courtesy of a cousin who was there on a visit.
I hope you all enjoyed my little journey down memory lane._
