|My parents' backyard summer 1995|
|the homestead for sale|
Times were changing for my family. My parents lived on an 87-acre farm that had been my father’s parents before them. Signs appeared in the front yard that hadn’t been there for the previous 72 years. The family farm was for sale and my parents were moving to the nearby city of Auburn where it would be easier to get to the grocery store and medical appointments as well as a much smaller house and property to take care of.

For my oldest nephew, things were moving in a different direction. That September he was married and became a stepfather to two young boys.
