You'll have to click on the photos to see them and what is written. Sorry everything is so small.
For half of my life, my address was: 1297 Old Darby Road Darby, Montana 59829. The other half it was: 2811 Old Darby Road.......
Same house. Different address. Growing up, I never understood how the post office could all of a sudden give us a new address when I was living in the same old house.
I don't know why, but I always make The SM drive by my old home when ever we go back to Montana to visit. And every time we drive by I get all ticked at how the place is being ruined.
* The yellow star in the tree. Yeah. That would be the apple tree we'd hide in and chuck rotten apples at mom's milk customers...... Sorry mom. Click on link for story.
This last trip was no different. I did take photos for you but not of my home. They've let it run down too much. It makes me sick. You can see the outbuildings/barns in major need of a paint job. I have a photo of my home from growing up that I'll figure how to scan and add someday.
As you can see, I had it pretty good growing up. I spent very little time in my house. Most of the time was spent in those fields and hills both working and playing.
Oh! And my house! It really is an old neat farm house. It was one of the stops on the Pony Express. True story! And the name "DEMOTT" on the garage/shop. A land mark. The people who owned/ran the stop. Their name was DeMott.
Just a little bit of fun history about my old home. The place where they stabled the horses was down the street around the corner. Another really neat old farm house.
