The Old Mule

Old Mule Farms - Graves Station, Ga.

The Old Smokehouse

A view from my back porch…

  I have the old farm smelling mighty good this morning. Have the smokehouse full of pork bringing that fragrance I enjoy so much. Throughout the years smoke has filled just about every inch of this place at one time or another. Once a main source for the early people, now its the pleasure of all pleasures. This simple life that found me a lifetime back moves by a little faster it seems these days, but as always through the slowness of today it stands still in time just like this land itself. That is why I prefer to keep things just like they are. Keeping those smoky hints from the past as a reminder of all things good and pure. Even a hard day of work echoes a friendly memory of survival making the rich even richer. I leave you this morning with these words, the pursuit of the future can never duplicate what already has been laid down, so let us stand among the smoke and enjoy the fragrance of it all……………………………………Dan
