THE MIDWEST IS UNIQUE IN ALL THE WORLD, THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE ON EARTH WHERE THE AUTUMN COLORS ARE SO SPECTACULAR BENEATH SUCH A PERFECTLY BLUE SKY. IT IS USUALLY PERFECT WEATHER UNTIL AFTER THANKSGIVING. AFTER THE DAY OF TURKEY FESTIVITIES AND GRATITUDE FOR THE BLESSINGS OF LIFE, THE WEATHER USUALLY CHANGES. IT IS AT THAT TIME WHEN ONE CONSIDERS WARMER CLIMATES. UNTIL THEN, ENJOY THE COLORS AND THE SOUNDS OF CRISP LEAVES UNDER FOOT.
- HUFFSTUTTER'S PHOTO ESSAYS
- My dad's dad, my grandfather, was nine years old when President Lincoln died from an assassin's bullet. Most people think I am speaking of my GREAT GRANDFATHER. NO, I am referring to my dad's father, my paternal Grandfather, Robert Levi Huffstutter, born in 1856. What does this information have to do with my profile? It might help the reader understand that I have a sense of being much older than I am in that only one generation seperates me from President Lincoln. This causes me to respond differently to society and many current events. In many respects, this is to my benefit, in other respects it dates my mindset. Perhaps this is the reason I value the moral standards and idealogies of older Americans, the men who were the soldiers and sailors I saw when I was a small boy,the men and women who fought a war for freedom without any doubts posted by a media with a questionable lack of national unity and purpose.
