More Precious Memories

by Loyd Gilbert Gilley

Book Image Not Available
Overview
At 71 years, my yesterdays are many and thanks to my God, they continue to grow in numbers, with each blessed in many ways. I came from a humble beginning in the backwoods of Jackson County Florida on a 40 acre, one mule farm with no electricity or any of the conveniences it provided. Water came from an open well, food was cooked on a wood stove, and kerosene lamps were used for light. Groceries were obtained from a rolling store, or grown on the farm. Clothes were ordered by mail from Sears & Roebuck or stitched by Mama on an old Singer sewing machine. Trips to town were on a mule drawn wagon. I was blessed with a wonderful family and a home filled with love and caring. We were poor folks but I never felt poor a day in my life. Today I am blessed with precious memories from my earliest years. I have grown with experiences and had a successful life and wonderful family.
