From the porch to the garden, into the woods
Having grown up in St. Louis county, much of my life was spent
on a bike peddling up and down the street or over the hill to play with a

could pose a childcare challenge for my single Mom with her long work hours.
So Mom sent my brother and me to stay the summer with our
grandparents in the country when I was ten, and with that my life course was
forever set. My entire world opened, as I now had forty acres to explore that
ran from the porch to the garden into the woods. Days consisted of working
hard around the farm, playing even harder, watching wrestling on TV with
Grandma, and fetching this and that for Grandpa.
