Silver City Express
Rained .01 inch last night. The morning is clear from Mexico to Colorado. I’ll get eggnog this morning. I don’t think I could stand a splash of rum.
Mules and shoes
I vaguely remember the blacksmith in our yard, leather apron and the mules.. I assume he shoed them. Not sure.
We had an old Fordson tractor around 1938/39. But it was a pill to get running. My brothers would take out the spark plugs and put them on the kitchen stove. Sometimes the hot plug would help ignite the gas. In 1940 we got a new Ford tractor. The mules were getting old. Dad kept them to till the garden.
