Fourth on the farm

By Carol Clark

"God shed his grace on thee" — Katharine Bates

This photo was taken in June at my Aunt Margaret's house, right down the street from where I grew up. Loma - Q Road - Heaven. Looking back, we had many 4th of July celebrations at her farm home with loads of food, homemade ice cream, oodles of cousins and magic charcoal worms that grew on the sidewalk when we lit them. Playing with fire was always the highlight and there was always the sparkler dances in the lawn while we waited for the big fireworks. It is still a favorite place for me to visit.

I was 12 when I had to move from the farm. My mom and dad had to drag me off to the big city (Grand Junction) crying and throwing a fit. I still miss this beautiful place and feel home sick when I have to leave.

Remember to create your own Indpendence Day traditions for the children in your family. Have a garden party and don't forget the charcoal worms.
