Thread: Welcome to CU Saint Frank!

I think what made it hard was spending 20 days watching Floyd wither away. If he had simply run away and forever evaporated, or been hit by a motor vehicle or predator (instant death), I probably would have handled it better.
Twenty days can be an eternity, one fraught with worry, panic, fear.

What is this "friends" thing that's clogging up the "mail box"?
Are there any benefits to it, or is it really only something like the "stars" my fellow alum Skins gives out?

Welcome Frank. I hope that you will treat CU to further stories of the Sandhills. Your unique view of life is a welcome contrast to the posting of some.

It's all a bunch of Greek to me, but it appears there were significant changes in what people fed pigs after 1945. From 1875 until 1945, the diet was reasonably consistent, after which it became more varied.
Or, has been conjectured, once swine excrement reaches a certain age, it makes no difference whether it's 75 years old or 150 years old, being essentially the same thing.
The William Rivers Pitt is layered, and about half of the way down there appears to be much dirt and silt.....probably traceable to North Dakota, as this is stuff from the 1930s.
About 6-10 feet into the William Rivers Pitt is of course the remains of the barn that burned down in 1950; the growth of the William Rivers Pitt since then has been natural, wind bringing in new dirt and settling it there. The William Rivers Pitt is apparently an always growing phenomenon.

It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.

As for repertoire of "stories," I dunno. I'm always stymied by the "character limit," and it for example took me forever to write about the newspaper editor and the party because it had to be done in segments. I'm beginning to wonder if freerepublic, which appears to have no "character limit," might not be a better venue.
It's not my fault the stories are so long; it's just something that happens.
