There are people doing dogs that are older than I, but not many. Friday I will do the big eightzero. My grandfather did ninetynine & two weeks. I plan to beat that, hopefully with facilities to recognize same.
When I was born Hoover was POTUS & times were tough but no one noticed that as everyone was in the same boat. But I will tell you what I have seen gives me a much different perspective on life than most. I have always been around working people & am most comfortable with them, so see life from that perspective.
dnf posted some of the things that happened that year on "Pigford vs Glickman" but I don't want that thread sidetracked as I want the progressives to own up to their folly. Gas was on occasion 7 gallons for a dollar, & while wages were lower everyone seemed to eat well, we all ate organic .
