Wandering into the Past

Do you ever wander into the past
A journey with folks’ you’ve known?
Chunks of time in our lives
That seems to have been on loan

You can do that with pictures
We all have them tucked away
In corners of our home and mind
Though a few of them will stray

One memory after another
Surface as we go through
Old family pictures
Has it ever happened to you?

Lookin’ kind of young in some
Oh, it sure does take you back
Makes you smile remembering
Thumbing through the picture stack

It was simply another time
Many folks now are gone
But we sure had a lot of fun
Doesn’t seem so very long

I love to wander into the past
As memories so sharp in my mind
Revisit the way things used to be
It was sure a different time!

Old Faithful Geyser

From Wikipedia,

Elevation 7,349 feet (2,240 m)

Type Cone geyser

Eruption Height 106 feet (32 m) to 185 feet (56 m)

Eruption Frequency 45-125 minutes

Eruption Duration 1.5-5 minutes

Discharge 3,700 US gallons (14 kl) to 8,400 US gallons (32 kl)

Old Faithful is a cone geyser located in Wyoming, in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. Old Faithful was named in 1870 during the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition and was the first geyser in the park to receive a name. The geyser, as well as the nearby Old Faithful Inn, is part of the Old Faithful Historic District.

On the afternoon of September 18, 1870 members of the Washburn-Langford-Doane Expedition traveled down the Firehole River from the Kepler Cascades and entered the Upper Geyser Basin. The first geyser they saw was Old Faithful. In his 1871 Scribner's account of the expedition, Nathaniel P. Langford wrote:

Judge, then, what must have been our astonishment, as we entered the basin at mid-afternoon of our second day's travel, to see in the clear sunlight, at no great distance, an immense volume of clear, sparkling water projected into the air to the height of one hundred and twenty-five feet. "Geysers! geysers!" exclaimed one of our company, and, spurring our jaded horses, we soon gathered around this wonderful phenomenon. It was indeed a perfect geyser. The aperture through which the jet was projected was an irregular oval, three feet by seven in diameter. The margin of sinter was curiously piled up, and the exterior crust was filled with little hollows full of water, in which were small globules of sediment, some having gathered around bits of wood and other nuclei. This geyser is elevated thirty feet above the level of the surrounding plain, and the crater rises five or six feet above the mound. It spouted at regular intervals nine times during our stay, the columns of boiling water being thrown from ninety to one hundred and twenty-five feet at each discharge, which lasted from fifteen to twenty minutes. We gave it the name of "Old Faithful."

In the early days of the park, Old Faithful was often used as a laundry:

Old Faithful is sometimes degraded by being made a laundry. Garments placed in the crater during quiescence are ejected thoroughly washed when the eruption takes place. Gen. Sheridan's men, in 1882, found that linen and cotton fabrics were uninjured by the action of the water, but woolen clothes were torn to shreds.

My Uncle’s Garage in Cloud Chief

In my many years I have come to a conclusion
that one useless man is a shame,
two is a law firm and three or more is a congress.

Opened up my picture book.

Scrolled back into the past
The perfect place to take a look.

Wise Words by a man name Don

Photo by John McCornack

1. Generations come and go but some leave legacies that live forever.

2. The Greatest Generation, born between 1911-1924, will touch us for all times.

3. They are national heroes who saved the world from a great darkness.

4. Their recognition is well deserved and well recorded in history.

5. Yet, the loss of those in their shadow, the Silent Generation, may be an even greater loss still.

6. When they depart, a great innocence will be forever lost.

A Rainbow of Colors

I have a rainbow of colors
Right in my flower bed
Yellow is my Basket of Gold
Oh, so much can be said.

Purple is my tiny little Daisies
Oh, there are so many others
Orange Nasturtiums so sweet
I love my rainbow of colors!

 No Lunch Money

John, thanks for sharing some of your younger years.. Times were very hard back then.. many times my brother and I had no lunch money, yet we didn't die, we walked home many times when the second bus forgot to pick us up.. In the boot heel of Missouri the winters could be raw, I found a website on the high school I attended.. A tornado about 4 years ago, destroyed it.. Thank goodness I have a few pictures of the building,, taken my last visit there in 1996.. I may not have had fun going to school.. but I came through it learning a great deal.. I didn't think much about how hard it was, for many families were in the same boat.
