Farmers often found equipment 'Going to the Sale'

posted: 08/23/2017 5 a.m.

Growing up in a farming community for me every now and then meant getting our chores done early so we could get away and go to the Sale. What we meant, more precisely, was that we were going to a farm auction, but we called it "Going to the Sale." That would sometimes mean that a farmer was selling out and moving away. Sometimes it meant that the farming operation had failed and gone broke. Or it might mean that an aging farmer was either downsizing or giving up his farming operation, to go into something else that he could handle, given his health status and stamina.

Old-time truck patchin'

posted: 08/16/2017 5 a.m.

The growth of farmer's markets in the communities of northwest Arkansas in recent years has been a very interesting development to me. I'm comparing the growers of today, who produce their goods in gardens and patches at home and bring their products to farmers' markets "in town," to the years ago folks I remember as the truck patchers of those days. Although in the years gone by almost everybody had a home garden, not everyone went to the greater extent to cultivate a truck patch, growing fresh produce for the market. These distinctions may not be precise, but I tend to think of a gardener as the person who cultivates a home garden plot to produce fresh produce for their own family. I think of a truck patcher as a person who devotes a small plot of ground, from an acre to a few acres, to growing garden-type produce, but which in this case is intended to be sold on the market.

If we exclude the world of politics (and the focus on Trump's Tweets) the focal point of most of the news is on opportunities for a multitude of personal entertainment choices or on the opposite extreme the extent of violence in the world. This article is not intended to compete with those areas, but rather to point out that after our years in the pursuit of pleasure and as we feel the strain of aging creeping into our lives, we might need to consider how, given a choice, we might choose to end our life.

Correspondence by handwritten letters

posted: 08/09/2017 5 a.m.

The methods people use to correspond with others has changed greatly over the past several years. Many of the changes have taken place within my own lifetime, and often have gone in unexpected directions. Even within our own family, the most common method of corresponding over long distances was by handwritten letter. This was the case for us until the 1990s, when we began entering the era of electronic mail. I won't say that we as a family have fully changed over to newer electronic methods of communicating, because at least some of our family members still write letters, and in long-hand cursive, still maintaining some of the traditional emphasis on penmanship.

For quite a number of years, the Pea Ridge Post Office has been located midway between the Arkansas Highway 94 and Arkansas Highway 72 intersections (both north and south) at the intersection of North Curtis Avenue with Patton Street. It seems a natural location now that the years have passed. Locations and buildings often come to feel like they have always been the way they are, especially after years of familiarity. But, for our old-timers, memories remind us that things haven't always been the way they are now, and that across the years institutions such as our Post Office have gone through many changes.
