A little nostalgia....this is the wagon train done by Rex Trailer in support of the ARC, which my grandfather was a founding member of.

My grandfather told me that he often played bridge with Rex at night when they stopped.

This is a great video to watch anyway, if you are a local, remember the old Rex Trailer show, and remember the original Shopper's World...

My grandfather was born in Russia. Had to move to Canada to flee the death camps.

He was a farmer in the bitter cold winterland of NE Montana.

He worked his ass off like most generations before us.

He retired to Phoenix in the 70's.

He passed away in Yuma a few years ago.

My grandmother was a house wife that worked equally as hard raising 8 children.

On my mom's side... Similar story, but instead they are still alive and retired from farming.

They raised 5 children.

I worked my ass off fulltime since I was 13 years old. I had a fulltime job (other than school) the day I turned 13.

Now, I am wiser. I still work hard... but, I take plenty of time off as well.

1 was a fireman and was eventually the chief of the Boston Fire Department. Died before I was born.

I'm embarrassed to admit I don't know what the other one did, but he was really grumpy so I probably didn't care if/when someone told me.

They were both in WWII.

Never met either of my grandfathers. My dad's dad died of a stroke when he was in his mid-50's. My mom's dad immigrated to the States from County Kerry in Ireland and passed the year before I was born.

Unfortunately, irony is hitting close to home as my son never met his grampy :(

Cool thread.

My maternal grandfather worked for the railroad as a conductor. He died when I was 6 so I have few memories of him. My mom tells me he was one mean and nasty SOB, he didn't hesitate to beat her and her siblings if they got out of line. In photos he sure looks like a nasty fellow, just the look in his eyes. On the other hand he and grandma managed to raise 9 kids in the heart of the great depression, so they musta done something right. My mom has many stories of those times. We don't know how good we got it.

My paternal grandfather was a coal miner in Pennsylvania. He was injured in the mines and was passed over for WW1 service. He eventually recovered and became a lineman for the electric company in the 20s. He lived a long life, I remember he died the day Bobby Orr scored the famous goal to win the Stanley cup. He was skilled in the art of calligraphy. I have a card upon which he wrote my name in fantastic flowing script. I don't know where or how he acquired that skill, it seems strange for a miner /lineman to have a hobby like that.

One of my Grandfathers worked down the coal mines of South Wales, no idea what the other did, never got to meet either of them but started to delve into the "family tree", not found any cut throats or pirates yet but gone into it with an open mind.

One of my grandmothers worked in the munitions factories again the other..no idea!
