    400 empty acres, that use to be my farm.

    [​IMG]

    Grew up like my Daddy did, my Grandpa cleared this land.

    [​IMG]

    When I was five I walked a fence while Grandpa held my hand.

    Crops we grew last summer, weren't enough to pay the loan.

    [​IMG]

    Couldn't buy the seeds to plant this spring.

    [​IMG]

    So the farmers bank foreclosed.

    [​IMG]

    Called my old friend up to auction off the land.

    Said it's just my job, I hope you understand.

    Calling it your job ol boy sure don't make it right. If you want me too, I'll say a prayer for your soul tonight.

    Great pics and interesting thread. I take it you did not work Monday as these were for sure not taken on the weekend.
