I dont ask for much, but my hope is that someday soon well get back to where we have a switch that says on and off Nowadays, everything has a pass code, sequence, or secret decoder I think maybe the yuppies overdid it with these computers The very thing they touted as the greatest time saving device in historya computernow occupies the lions share of everybodys life Heres a perfect example I owned a Toyota Tundra truck for a while, and I got tired of driving around with my headlights on all the time If Im driving around in the woods and its late in the evening, I dont want my headlights on I tried to turn the lights off and couldnt do it I spent an hour inside the truck with a friend of mine trying to turn off the lights, but we never figured it out So I called the car dealer, and he told me to look in the owners manual Well, it wasnt in the book, which is about as thick as a Bible Finally, about ten days later, after my buddy spent some time with a bunch of young bucks in town driving Toyota trucks, he told me he had the code for turning off my lights Now, get this First, you have to shut off the trucks engine Then you have to step on the emergency brake with your left foot until you hear one click Not two clicksonly one If you hear two clicks, you have to bring the brake back up and start all over After you hear one click, you crank the engine back up I sat there thinking, Why would you possibly need a code for turning off headlights What kind of mad scientist came up with that sequence Seriously, what kind of mind designs something like that To me, its not logical I just dont get it, but thats where we are in todays world I miss the times when life was simple I came from humble, humble beginnings When I was a young boy growing up in the far northwest corner of Louisiana, only about six miles from Texas and ten miles from Arkansas, we didnt have very much in terms of personal possessions But even when times were the hardest, I never once heard my parents, brothers, or sisters utter the words Boy, were dirt poor We never had new cars, nice clothes, or much money, and we certainly never lived in an extravagant home, but we were always happy, happy, happy, no matter the circumstances My daddy, James Robertson, was that kind of a guy He didnt care about all the frills in life he was perfectly content with what we had and so were we We were a self contained family, eating the fruits and vegetables that grew in our garden or what the Almighty provided us in other ways And, of course, when we were really lucky, we had meat from the deer, squirrels, fish, and other game my brothers and I hunted and fished in the areas around our home, along with the pigs, chickens, and cattle we raised on our farm It was the 1950s when I was a young boy, but we lived about like it was the 1850s My daddy always reminded us that when he was a boy, his family would go to town and load the wagon down and return home with a months worth of necessities For only five dollars, they could buy enough flour, salt, pepper, sugar, and other essentials to survive for weeks We rarely went to town for groceries, probably because we seldom had five dollars to spend, let alone enough gas to get there We rarely went to town for groceries, probably because we seldom had five dollars to spend, let alone enough gas to get there I grew up in a little log cabin in the woods, and it was located far from Yuppieville The cabin was built near the turn of the twentieth century and was originally a three room shotgun house At some point, someone added a small, protruding shed room off the southwest corner of the house The room had a door connecting to the main room, which is where the fireplace was located I guess whoever added the room thought it would be warmest near the fireplace, which was the only source of heat in our house In hindsight, it really didnt make a difference where you put the room if you didnt insulate or finish the interior walls It was going to be cold in there no matter what I slept in the shed with my three older brothersJimmy Frank, the oldest, who was ten years older than me Harold, who was six years older than me and Tommy, who was two years older than me I never thought twice about sleeping with my three brothers in a bed I thought thats what everybody did My younger brother, Silas, slept in the main room on the west end of the house because he had a tendency to wet the bed My older sister, Judy, also slept in that room I can still remember trying to sleep in that room during the winterthere were a lot of sleepless nights The overlapping boards on the exterior walls of the house were barely strong enough to block the wind, and they sure didnt stand a chance against freezing temperatures The shed room was about ten square feet, and its only furnishings were a standard bed and battered chest of drawers My brothers and I kept a few pictures, keepsakes, and whatnots on the two by four crosspieces on the framing of the interior walls Every night before bed, we unloaded whatever was in our pockets, usually a fistful of marbles and whatever else wed found that day, on the crosspieces and then reloaded our pockets again the next morning To help battle the cold, my brothers and I layered each other in heavy homemade quilts on the bed Jimmy Frank and Harold were the biggest, so they slept on opposite sides of the bed, with Tommy and me sleeping in between them My daddy and my mother, Merritt Robertson we started calling them Granny and Pa when our children were born , slept in a small middle room in the house My youngest sister, Jan, was the baby of the family and slept in a crib next to my parents bed until she was old enough to sleep with Judy The fireplace in the west room was the only place to get warm It was made of the natural red stone of the area and was rather large One of my brothers once joked that it was big enough to burn up a wet mule Because the fireplace was the only source of heat in the home, it was my familys gathering spot Every morning in the winter, the first person out of bedit always seemed to be Haroldwas responsible for starting a fire It would usually reignite with pine fatwood kindling, but sometimes you had to blow the coals to stoke the flames Some of my favorite memories as a child were when we baked potatoes and roasted hickory nuts on the fireplace coals for snacks We usually ate them with some of my mothers homemade dill pickles There was never any candy or junk food in our house The only other room in the cabin was a combination kitchen and dining area The cookstove was fueled by natural gas from a well that was located down the hill and across the creek The pressure from the well was so low that it barely produced enough gas to cook Pa always said we were lucky to have the luxury of running water in the house, even if it was only cold water coming through a one inch pipe from a hand dug well to the kitchen sink We didnt even have a bathtub or commode in the house The water pipeline habitually froze during the winter, and my brothers and I spent many mornings unfreezing the pipe with hot coals from the fire When the pipe was frozen, wed grab a shovelful of coals and place them on the ground under the pipe When we finally heard gurgling and then water spitting out of the kitchen sink, we knew we could return to the fire to get warm again Breakfast began when Granny put a big pot of water on the stove to heat We didnt have a hot water heater, so we bathed in cold water when I was young Granny used the hot water for cooking and cleaning the dishes Breakfast usually consisted of hot buttermilk biscuits, blindfolded fried eggs, butter, and fresh sweet milk every morning, one of my brothers or I would take a pail of hot water to the barn to clean the cows udders after we milked them There were always several jars of jams and jellies on our table Pa and Granny canned them from wild fruits that grew in abundance in the Arklatex area Pa liked to scold us for having too many jars open at once he said we opened them just to hear the Ball jar lids pop He may have been right Nearly everything we ate came from our land The eggs came from our chickens, the milk and butter from our cows Bacon and sausage came from the hogs we raised and butchered We canned vegetables from our large garden, which spread over about eight acres in three different patches Cucumbers were turned into jars and jars of sweet, sour, bread and butter, and dill pickles Our pantry shelves were lined with canned tomatoes, peppers, beets, and just about anything else my family grew, including pears, peaches, plums, and grapes, as well as the abundant dewberries and blackberries of the area Cut up cabbage, green tomatoes, onions, and peppers were mixed together and canned to make what we called chow chow, a relish that was a delicious accompaniment to just about anythingespecially fish In addition to our garden, where we also grew such things as English peas, butter and pole beans, lettuce, turnips, mustard greens, onions, radishes, carrots, Irish and sweet potatoes, cantaloupes, and watermelons, my family grew several fields of peas, peanuts, and corn We started many of the vegetables from seeds that were planted in a hotbed called a cold frame by some in early February My brothers and I gathered cow and horse manure, which, as it decomposed, kept the bed warm and enriched the soil After the plants sprouted and grew big enough, we transferred them to the garden One year Pa, figuring he would get a jump on the market for the early watermelons that brought the highest prices, had my brothers and I collect manure from the cow pens to put into two hundred holes He directed us to dig the holes two feet square and two feet deep In early February, Jimmy Frank and Harold laboriously filled washtub after washtub with manure and then transported them on a slide pulled by an old mule to the holes that were dug After depositing the manure into the holes, we mixed the top of it with soil and planted the watermelon seeds To be perfectly honest, Tommy and I didnt become too interested in the project until Jimmy Frank and Harold told us we should plant marblesalong with the watermelon seedsin the holes They promised us we would grow a big crop of marbles Of course, we were young enoughand thus gullible enoughto believe them We already had marbles running out our ears from ill gotten gains at the schoolyard, where we played bulls eye, cats eye, and hotbox for keeps whoever shot best and won the others marbles got to keep them We won regularly and often came home with pockets bulging with marbles, which we deposited in a five gallon bucket just inside the back door Tommy and I grabbed our bucket and, with high hopes, planted them in the manure just like our older brothers told us to do It didnt take Tommy or me too long to realize we had been duped We ended up sacrificing ammunition for our slingshots for a bumper crop that never came There were always two things in my pocket when I was youngmarbles and a slingshot We made our slingshots from forked tree limbs and red real rubber bands we cut from old inner tubes the black synthetic inner tubes didnt have the necessary snap to propel a marble or small rock We used the slingshots to bring down small birds, but Granny and my grandmothers always admonished us not to shoot the mockingbirds or redbirds, as they called cardinals Our watermelons came up beautifully that year The decaying manure heated the beds enough to sprout the seeds early, and the soils added richness gave the young watermelon plants a tremendous growth spurt that turned the hillside where they were growing into a couple of acres of lush, verdant green vines Pa never followed up on selling them, so we wound up giving away what we didnt eat to kinfolk and friends My entire family took part in harvesting fruits and vegetables If we hadnt, we wouldnt have had enough to eat From the beginning of May, when the mayhaws and dewberries ripened, until the end of fall, with the gathering of muscadines and pears, my family and I could regularly be found in the areas swamps, fields, forests, and abandoned home sites With our buckets and tubs, from the youngest to the oldest, we would be stooped over or stretched upward gathering whatever fruit was in season The trick was to get there when the fruit was ripeand before another family beat you to it Pa, who worked on drilling rigs usually located in the wilds, often discovered fruit trees and berry and grape vines as he moved about with the rigs He also knew the locations of many old home sites with abandoned peach orchards, grapevines, and plum and pear trees There was no shortage of places to harvest The trick was to get there when the fruit was ripeand before another family beat you to it I remember one particularly cold, wet spring when my family was wading ankle deep in our everyday shoes because we didnt have rubber boots to gather mayhaws in cottonmouth infested waters near Myrtis, Louisiana, in a swampy area off Black Bayou Clouds of mosquitoes covered our backs, biting through our thin shirts while we stooped to gather the floating fruit we shook from thickly clustered trees Mayhaw jelly is still my favorite, and even today my wife, Kay, and I gather the bright reddish orange berries from the swamps around our home each spring We make plenty of the tart jelly for our needs, usually with enough left over for our children and other family members and friends Mayhaw jelly has a unique, delicious flavor One year when I was young, the wild grapes were so abundant in the old Ruby Florence field that they filled all of our tubs and buckets with rich, purple red fruit We could barely fit our harvest into the car, which was already crowded with adults and children In fact, the trunk was so crammed full of tubs and buckets of fruit piled on top of each other that the lid wouldnt shut Several large buckets and pans of grapes were jammed inside the car, on the floorboards, between our legs, and on our laps The harvest was so great that Granny lit all four burners on the stove and had Pa and Jimmy Frank set an entire number three washtub full of grapes on top of them to render the juice As our luck would have it, this was also one of the years when the price of sugar was sky high always a consideration in canning as to whether it was worth the cost After making a smaller amount of jelly than usual, my family simply sealed a number of gallons of surplus grape juice in quart jars without sugar and stored them in the cabinets alongside and beneath the sinkthinking we might make jelly later, after the price of sugar went down But we eventually found that the stored juice was delicious, so my brothers and I drank a quart or daily for breakfast and snacks Before too long, the juice began to ferment In only a short time, it turned into a very good wine My parents and older relatives began to drink this, too, but couldnt finish it before it turned into vinegar Granny used the vinegar in her canning throughout the rest of the year Of course, man cant survive on fruits and vegetables alone at least not a real man , so we also raised and butchered our own beef, usually killing two steer calves annually that weighed about four hundred pounds each The calves were the offspring of our milk cows, which were bred to my aunt Myrtles beef type bulla runty, mostly Black Angus mix, which still sired nice calves Pa and my older brothers would kill the calf, gut and skin it, and wrap it in an old bedsheet, which they then put into the trunk of our car We didnt have a deep freezer, so the meat was taken to Vivian, Louisiana, about two miles away, where it was hung to cool and age in a local icehouse After about fourteen days, Pa brought the sides of beef home and cut them up on the dining table Then Granny and Pa wrapped the meat in freezer paper and took it to a rental storage locker in town, where it was frozen Granny periodically retrieved packages of beef when she was in town and transferred them to the small freezing compartment in the refrigerator at home Homegrown chickens were another staple at my house when I was a boy Pa bought two hundred baby chicks by mail order each year at a cost of about five dollars per hundredone hundred early and another hundred later, so we always had young fryers running around the yard It was a big day when the baby chicks were brought home from the post office in a ventilated cardboard box They were immediately moved into a brooder Jimmy Frank built with four by eight foot sheets of tin The brooder was heated by using an old washtubwith vents on the sidesand a small burner that was fueled by the natural gas well that also heated the stove We didnt wait too long to start eating the chickenseven if it took eight of them to make a meal We usually kept twenty or so hens every year to lay eggs, and we dined on the older ones from previous years during the winter Of course we cooked and prepared them the old fashioned way wringing their necks, plucking the feathers, and singeing them over a stove burner Our Sunday meals in the spring and summer typically consisted of fried chicken and homemade ice cream, which was made with the rich cream of our Jersey cows On the way home from church, wed pick up a twenty five pound block of ice, and my brothers and I would make the ice cream outside Jimmy Frank or Harold cranked the freezer, while Tommy or I sat on it to keep it steady The story of the Robertson family is a pretty good picture of an early American family We didnt have much, but we loved each other and found ways to keep each other entertained We didnt have cell phones or computers, but somehow we managed to survive As far as I know, none of my brothers or sisters has ever owned a cell phone, and Jimmy Frank is the only one who owns a computer, because hes a newspaperman and needs one to write his stories Ive never owned a cell phone and dont plan on ever having one Ive never owned a computer, and Im still trying to figure out what the fuss over social media is all about I can promise you one thing youll never find me on Twitter or Skype If anyone needs to talk to me, they know where I live.Life
