My father worked building Guntersville Dam, Alabama. It was completed on January 17, 1939. That was three days before my third birthday. My father took my mother and me to see the completed dam. I remember looking down into the empty lock. I probably remember it because there was a small stream of water spurting out between the closed doors at the other end of the lock.
Another very early memory I cannot put a date on was when a barn was being built at my aunt and uncles place. I can remember the men putting up the rafters silhouetted against the sky. Both of these memories are just as clear as if I were looking at a picture of them.
Are we having fun yet?
