Each and every week we can see more and more mud at the edge of the big farm pond. DH cut the grass last week down there and was able to mow a wide strip of the dark green grasses that are usually under water! We were counting on getting the remnants of the weird "Fay" storm that sat on Florida for a week, but that may not happen now. It's pretty bad when we pray for rain ............. even from a hurricane!
This is a newspaper from 1945 telling of President Roosevelt's death, and Truman taking over . I came across a slew (that's a LOT!) of old newspapers that my mama had saved and packed up very well over the years recently in the old storage building on the farm. She always loved to read, both newspapers and books and magazines, and saved the issues of important happenings of the times. I also have papers of President John F. Kennedy being asassinated; also his brother Robert Kennedy's asassination; and others of Oswald's being arrested and then his being killed. And some about Winston Churchill's death and something about General McArthur........surely there must be someone wanting these types of things for safe-keeping!? I don't know enough about ebay, etc. to find them homes, but if any of my readers know any collectors, please let me know! Thanks very much! If nothing else, the pictorial advertisements in these newspapers would make for GREAT art in collage and mixed-media!
