“That the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of God.
These are grounds of hope for others.”
Where I was raised in S W MO, had lead mines all over the place back around the turn of the century. In fact, one little town not far away, was Galena, the old time name for lead ore. My Grandfather knew a lot of guys employed in them back when he was a kid.
Does it occur to those that believe that the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, may be because that guy takes the time to take care of his grass?
