July 14th………..“DID YOU HAVE A NEARBY FARMER WHO WAS MORE FAMILY THAN JUST NEIGHBOR”?
POEM – “Harry B. n Me”. Created by N. Elliott Noorlun. January 28th, 2013. Sharing here about our jovial and giant-hearted farm neighbor, Harry Bauman. This dear soul of a man was beyond generous to our farm family over the many decades we knew him. And laugh? Ohhh myyy could Harry EVER laugh!!! His whole body would shake with joy in his laughter to the point he’d have to grab his big bandana handkerchief to blow his nose and wipe the laughing tears from his eyes. We loved him dearly!!! 😉
A farmer boy, I’ll always be,
Though years have separated, Farm and me.
Just like this Massey-Harris here,
One just like it, Held memories dear,
Of sweet old neighbor, We called “Grandpa Harry”,
Who’d help our dad, And then would tarry,
He’d have some supper, In our country kitchen,
And laugh till his sides, Needed some stitchin’.
Yup, a farmer boy, I’ll always be,
Just like “Grandpa Harry”, All filled with glee!!
