    I was about 10 years old when my uncle who lived 3 houses away bought these. He had them in his front yard for years. When my uncle died they became mine. upload_2017-1-28_11-2-39.png upload_2017-1-28_11-3-8.png

    Do they stand on plexiglass, NyBoy?

    (Or, did you photoshop those donkeys in? "Gardening with Animals," Trickster! ;))

    I learned from a neighbor to my old homesite that the nearby mountain was logged with oxen. I always thought I could do something like this: Gene Logsdon.

    Were there many aunts and uncles in your family, NyBoy?

    My father was 1 of 13 children. 4 houses on our block where owned by family. My father still lives in the house my grandparents built. He was born in his bedroom and says he will die in that room. My grandmom had 12 of her 13 at home.
