A year with Marshal Griffin




Marshal Griffin County Agent of Laurel County Kentucky .

Was good friends with Dad, Dad often stop by his office to visit when he went  to town.

During one visit Marshal  and dad were talking about a farm Marshal owned in Pulaski County Kentucky .

Marshal was looking to lease his farm, and they discussed the matter.

Dad  thought his proposal sounded good enough to give it a try.

 We  learned about the proposal when Dad got home, and the decision he had made.

Mother wasn't to happy.

 We were going to be moving again which was something Mother detested. If there was one thing Mother didn't like it was moving.

Ever since they were married Dad would move ever year or so.

This move was going to be the farthest, away from the Rough Creek area where her parents lived.

That we had ever moved.

Mother was used to moving,  but this time it just didn't feel right .

And she knew it would take a while for her to adjust, but agreed to give it a try

All went smooth for the move, and Mother adjusted  pretty well.

 Marshal had a herd of Dairy cattle that  needed  immediate attention.

 Milking and taking care of them, became top priority and we  all had to settled in fast.

After a few months into the lease, Dad  began to think Mother was right about the move.

He was having second thoughts ,  he found out we were putting  way to many hours in, for the amount of money we were making.

Wasn't long until another move was in the making, we would be moving back to Rough Creek .

One good thing did come from the move, dad  learned the grass isn't always greener on the other side of the fence.

Dad promised, no more moves anyways soon, for the family after that .

 Which drew a hardy "Amen" from the gang.

Until next time, God bless.
