On the Frontier

Both sets of my grandparents lived on the frontier.  One set moved west in a covered wagon.

My grandmother walked through an Indian camp to get to school. 

One time grandpa and his brother were taking a wagon load of grain into town.  The horses spooked and ran into some wire fence, taking out a big chuck of fence and turning the wagon over.

Grandpa said it was not a pretty sight when he and his brother got back home with an empty wagon and cut up horses.  Great grandpa didn't take it well, and a whuppin' ensued.

It was because they were texting while driving the wagon that they lost control and trouble ensued!

Back in those days they did not believe in spareing the rod and spoiling the child.
