Wrong Again! Shades of Flip Wilson!

Jan 7, 2024 | 0 comments

Let’s get this straight right now.  The next Pacific County History Forum meets from ten ayem till noon on February 7th — the first Wednesday of next month.  I’ve been telling everyone the wrong date and I can only borrow Flip Wilson’s famous line, “The Devil made me do it” or admit to yet another aspect of Addled Old Age.  Either excuse is actually fine with me as long as I can get the word out that the 7th is the date to mark on your calendar.

We’ll be continuing the discussion about our agricultural history and adding logging to the discussion.  And even though it’s been less than a week since our last Forum, we’ve been getting LOTS of feed-back from the community (and beyond) regarding both subjects.  I’m looking forward to some interesting input and lively discussion on the seventh of next month!

Meanwhile, take a look at our YouTube presentation.  It’s in two parts.  The first is pretty much Introductory and is 6.27 minutes long.  You can find it by Googling Pacific County History Forum 01-03-2024.  The second part gets down to the Nitty Gritty with participants weighing in and sharing lots of information about farming and agricultural history.  Google Pacific County History Forum 01-03-2024 Farming and Agriculture. General Discussion.  Both parts are on YouTube.  Many thanks to Michael Lemeshko for taking on this onerous task!  The results are better each month and are providing a valuable record for future researchers and historians.

Plus, I have to say I love getting this opportunity to see who all were there!  I’m usually too busy, too distracted, too visually impaired to really notice who is in the “audience” unless they actually weigh in.  I love perusing the videos to see so many friends and acquaintances and history buffs who are venturing forth!  I hope you all keep coming and soon feel comfortable enough with something we’re exploring to weigh in — or to start your own memoir or history research of anything to keep the historic record going! There’ve been all sorts of learned reasons put forth about why we should study our history — but for me, it’s simply to answer our friend Jim Sayce’s question to me twenty years ago:  “When we’re gone, Sydney, who’s going to tell the stories?”  Who indeed?
