to show to schools or your hometown historical society?

5. Had not thought of that. Will check with them.

Drove out earlier this week to the county I grew up in to the Historical Museum. Took them a 9 x 11 photo of the first drilling rig in the county in the early 30s. The well is still pumping and still in the family.

3. My grandfather assisted his priest give last rites, during the Spanish Flu

He had a wife and 4 small children, at home. Somehow none of them ever got flu, yet, people just going about their regular lives died.

This is the perfect time to remember we need to Keep Calm and Carry On Responsibly.
