Holiday as it should bee.

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 what I did, no grass or place to play in.
I was one of the lucky one’s that was able to go to a place where there were farming and animals to play with, many of my friends 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 thing for the farmers .Many mornings’s 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 curve of the horse’s without been kicked.
I was always short of money, they newer seem to last long, so I got a paper run what would tie me over for some time. Another little job I had was working at the local grocery shop in town pumping gas, that was a novelty in those day’s and when I’m saying pumping I mean pumping it was the only way to get gas into the car’s and it was hard work.In those days 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 kids’ today that doesn’t know how to play outside, sitting inside playing with electric gadget does not teach them how to get close to 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.
