    Great story!
    Funny old guy too!
    Seems like the ones that have had the longest and the hardest life, always have the best attitudes.

    DN: How is this against your rules?
    I am complimenting his ability to garden, and correcting you for poor editing. Do you want examples? You fixed some of them, but left this beauty: "Politics made his father’s work difficulty at times, Mackay said." Not a direct quote, as there were no quotation marks, so I have to assume the poor grammar was the author's.

    Original post:
    "DN: Where is your editing? There are many spelling, typographical and syntactical errors in this piece.

    Now, about the story: Charming farmer. I'm REALLY impressed with his ability to grow elephant ears in Utah. He really must have a green thumb."

    I wish my parents could of lived as long as this man. It sad to be an orphan on matter what age. I liked the story, it brought the memories of my mom and dad.

    I would like to visit with this amazing man, his smile is contagious and his "keep on going" attitude is too!
