Jons Dad took Jon and I to see the old place where he grew up. The lady who bought the farm from Jons Dad when Frank was 12 still owns the place and she asked him to build her a new well box.
I had a wonderful time getting to see the house where Jons Dad was born and lived til he was 12. Jons grandpa and great grandpa built the house. I thought you guys might like to see the pics I took. It was last fall.

This is the house. Its in bad shape now. The woman who owns it had been renting it and the people really wrecked it. They were even tearing down the barn and burning it in the fireplace. You can see Jon and his Dad off to the side.

This is the outside of the root cellar where Jons Grandma used to keep all her goodies.
You can see the stones on the side that it goes back into the hill.

Inside the cellar. You see the people she rented to just threw trash in there.

In my mind I can see all of Jons Granny's pickled goods lining the shelves in old crocks and mason jars.

I used my computer to take the trash out of this pic of the cellar to see it better.
