As the 20th century approached the 1990s, Dad mentioned that if he could live that long he would have lived in each decade of the century.

He often commented on the vast changes he’d seen as they developed. He marveled at the first cars he saw about 1913. He experienced the progress of plowing, from teams to steam engine to tractors. He lived thru the Great Depression and two World Wars. He reveled in the development of power tools, from hand saw to chain saws, electric drills and such. He watched the advancement of airplanes, and witnessed the beginning of the space age and computers.This is his story, recorded on audio tapes as family history. It is told in his sometimes-blunt language (R-rated), including difficulties, mistakes, joys and accomplishments.
