Holiday

Holiday as it should bee.
When I was a kid Holiday’s was something you looked forward to especially when you lived in the City like I did, no grass or places to play.
I was one of the lucky one’s that was able to go to a place where there was farming and lot’s of animals to look and play with if you weren’t scared of them, many of my friend’s have newer seen a cow or a pig or even know how to feed them, as I said I was one of the lucky ones that over the years had been in contact with many farm animals at the farm where I spend many of my holiday’s.
My grandparent’s had an old house next to the blacksmith that made horseshoes and other thing for the farmer’s , many morning’ I woke up to hear the horses coming into the yard where they stood to the blacksmith had made the shoes for them and it was time to put them on, and that was amazing to see how he could fit them onto the huff2012-03-17 11.46.32 of the horse’s without been kicked.
I was always short of money, they newer seem to last long, so I got myself and a friend a paper run what would tie me over for some time, another little job I had was working for the local grocery shop only one in town. Pumping gas was a novelty in those day’s and when I saying pumping I mean pumping it was the only way to get gas into the car’s and it was hard work, it was the only way you got the whole shopping done at the same place and paid when you left at the counter in cash.
I feel sorry for so many kid’s today that doesn’t know how to play outside, it all have to bee sitting inside playing with electric gadget that does not teach them how to get close to the nature

Born somewhere in Danmark after the second War, 1944 was the year one of the best. I was left on the Church step somebody told me later not sure if I did care. Spend many days playing in the snow like most kids did in that ages. My schooling was normal education but when I reached 15 I lost interest. My schooling got replaced with an apprenticeship that lasted 4 years. Army training was my next stop what I did like. After that, it was back to make furniture, with a trade that was not a money spinner I decided to Emigrate to New Zeland.
