Saturday Morning Basketball
I grew up with three brothers, and we all played basketball. A large oak tree in our yard by the garden served as a makeshift post for our basketball goal and backboard. Our court was most of the times a grass court, worn down to a dirt court. Countless hours were spent on that court.

The Tomato Man
Dad wore a lot of hats over the years. He served in the Army. He studied Agriculture Business at the University of Missouri. He labored many years in construction, helping build places like the new Branson City Hall, the Longcreek Bridge, and many other projects as far away as Camdenton, Missouri, 100 miles from our home. He raised cattle, strawberries and various other vegetables.
But his speciality was tomatoes.
