Old Days

Woodsrunner

I thought I would post  this picture of me when I used to work on the Eleven Point Ranch near Thomasville MO. I worked in the woods and did timber stand improvement which means I thinned and got rid of damaged trees from some of the logging operations. I worked by myself, so there was plenty of time to think, and read, and take naps along the river during lunch. I lived in a 12×14 shack on the eleven point river all the way at the back of the ranch which is 14,000 acres. I hunted and fished for my meat and gathered nuts, fruits and alot of my food. It was a great time in my life. The cabin was located through 3 locked gates so the only people I ever saw were ranch employee’s and guys on hunting leases. My life has changed alot since those days. I have a great life now and wouldn’t change a thing about the way my life is or has been. Different seasons of life.
