1939 Chevy

1939 Chevy and Telephones in the 1950’s

1939 Chevy, My First Truck -Transcript by my father, Milson Harris, b. 1936. t was a 1939 Chevy.  Yea, I do not know, dad made the deal for it.  I don’t imagine he paid very much for it.  It was pretty bad.  But yea, we were in the garage when we heard this noise in the yard and there was the truck sitting there, kind of in the middle of the yard, and the steam was rolling out all over...

Making Music in a Senior Citizen's Home

Making Music in a Senior Citizen’s Center

My father was hanging out with me in the basement, and then he began getting his band equipment together to haul upstairs to load into the car. He told me that he had a gig to play at the senior citizens’ home in Coronach, the next town over. My father is a very youthful 78-years-of-age. I asked him if he needed a roadie for making music. He was happy to have another set of hands to carry equipment, so I decided that I would join him for his performance. Once we got everything into the car, we had a quick sandwich in the house. As we were about to run out the door one of my brothers called. I knew we were short on time but my dad was too polite to say so and he talked to my brother as I watched the anxiousness build up in him as time was ticking by. Eventually, dad got off the phone and we jumped in the car to race the ordinary 15 minute drive from the ranch to town.

Big Beaver: Clown Costume Aftermath

Big Beaver: Clown Costume Aftermath. August 30.   Showing up for a party at night in clothing fit for a clown is fun.  Waking up the next day hung over and realizing that you will have to put the clown costume clothes on again to get home is a lousy feeling.  It is awful to feel terrible and have to battle though the day in such apparel.  It limits what you are willing to do.  There was no way I...

Coronach: Old Boys Club

Coronach: Old Boys Club

Coronach: Old Boys Club. August 29.   It was quite a day as a farmer.  I walked over the hills through the pasture with a .22 rifle in search of gophers to hunt, but there are none around.  I walked for a mile and a half through the pasture to the field where my brother and my father are working and I never shot a bullet.  I collected a cow-skull though, so the walk was not futile. My brother Matt...

Big Beaver: Rain Rain Rain and My Entertaining Father

Big Beaver: Rain Rain Rain and My Entertaining Father. August 24.   The rain will not let up.  There has been three inches of consistent dreary rain… Mike woke me up, brought me a glass of water, fed me pancakes and Pizza Pops and then drove me home through the slop.  It was great to spend time with him. I got home and visited with dad and Pat.  I like to be around them.  I like to tease Pat with...

Coronach: Universal Thoughts with Mike

Coronach: Universal Thoughts with Mike. August 23.   It is raining like crazy here.  There is far too much rain.  The earth here is saturated.  It has been two days of rain, at a lousy time.  Had the sun been shining my family would be in the fields harvesting.  I wish that was happening as I would like to be a part of that while I am home. I spend the day with dad and then Michael came to pick...
