AFTER 80 YEARS THESE STORIES POP UP IN
OLD MEMORIES.  WHEN SMALL THE STATUE OF LIBERTY WAS ALL THE WINDMILLS OF THE OLD WEST.
ALWAYS WANTED TO SEE THE REAL STATUE OF LIBERTY BUT NEVER GOT TO FROM GROUND LEVEL.
FLEW IN TO JFK-EWR-LGA SEVERAL TIMES AND ON LANDING SPOTTED IT IN THE DISTANCE.
HAVE HAD A LIFETIME OF WINDMILL MATERIAL.  MAYBE AT LEAST 100 PICTURES FRAMED AND WITH POST CARDS.
THE OLD WINDMILL IS GONE FROM MY BIRTHPLACE IN IOWA BUT THE HOUSE IS STILL STANDING.  AT LEAST IT WAS IN LAST TRIP TO IOWA 6 YEARS AGO.  THE EARLY PORTION OF THE HOME WAS LOG CABIN WHICH MANY DID NOT KNOW.
ALWAY REMEMBER THE WINDMILL AND BARBED WIRE WERE THE TOP TWO FACTORS IN THE EARLY DAYS OF OUR COUNTRY.
