I have loved, I have been loved, should I never love again, I am fortunate. James W. Nelson quote

Background Information

James W. Nelson was born in a little farmhouse on the prairie in eastern North Dakota in 1944. Some doctors made housecalls back in those days, and came out by horse and buggie. He remembers kerosene lamps, bathing in a large galvanized tub, and their first phone number was a long ring followed by four short rings, and everybody in the neighborhood could rubberneck. Imagine that today!

Some jobs: Potato picking,haymaking, other farm duties including endless chores, US Navy submarine force, flowershops and greenhouses,many factories including 3M Wahpeton, ND,wholesale health food shipping, battery recycling, sod laying, auto test driving in frozen Fargo, ND, apple thining and cherry picking in Washington, corral construction in Arizona, the list goes on.
