Grandpa Was A Shepherd

Colaborador: Jane Little Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Many years before I was born, health problems arose And grandpa lost his dear wife, He then was left with their five growing children, And a very, very lonely life. So he went back to his favorite pastime, Foreman over many bands of sheep, The girls were sent to live with a kindly old aunt, The son had an engagement to keep. Dad and mom were married - we moved to Wyoming And grandpa came to live with us - On a sheep and cattle ranch, miles from town, We kids needed someone with time for us. He told us stories of when he was a boy, His years in the mountains and desert, Of the trails that he rode, and the fun in town When he'd stop for an occasional "snort!" Grandpa loved his flocks of sheep, He was steward over many thousands in his days, They weren't to be mistreated by herders or dogs, They'd be moved onto the best places to graze. In the shearing or the docking corral, Some of those old biddies could make an "angel" cuss! But they didn't upset him till they tromped his "corns," THEN - he just might create a FUSS! One year at lambing time, early in May, A late blizzard struck, the deadly winds did blow, This was in the days before lambing sheds, There was no protection from the fierce winds and snow! Dad, grandpa, and herders worked night and day, Saving the few they could shelter in the barn. When the storm was over - death everywhere - Poor little lambs, frozen where they'd been born. We went by train to visit the cousins, What's that pang! - just a tinge of jealousy? To find that MY grandpa, is also the grandpa, To kids in four OTHER families! I learned to drive, he hitched up the pickup and said, "Move that camp 'round the lake like a good 'camp jack'." "But the road's too slanty - it will tip over!" "Just put 'er in compound and DON'T look back." As the years began to tell in his actions, One of the things that he hated the worst, Was that his legs ached and had stiffened with age And he had to CLIMB ON A STUMP to mount his horse!! I remember his last two summers with us, At his age this "boss-job" was hard to do. No men around and he had a field full of kids Playing "hay-men," this was during World War II. Grandpa was a kindly man, The "peculiarities" of animals and kids he could handle, But, as he aged and his health began to fail - Why the hospitals and pain? - he'd never been fragile! He passed away in my eighteenth year, His was the first funeral I was to attend, This grand old man, (the father of my dad,) This loved one - my grandpa - my friend! Donnella B. Dean May 6, 1986 (Grandpa Buckley died 40 years ago this next September)

Life timeline of James Waterhouse Buckley

James Waterhouse Buckley was 11 years old when Krakatoa begins to erupt; the volcano explodes three months later, killing more than 36,000 people. Krakatoa, or Krakatau, is a volcanic island situated in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra in the Indonesian province of Lampung. The name is also used for the surrounding island group comprising the remnants of a much larger island of three volcanic peaks which was obliterated in a cataclysmic 1883 eruption.
James Waterhouse Buckley was 22 years old when Mahatma Gandhi forms the Natal Indian Congress (NIC) in order to fight discrimination against Indian traders in Natal. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā – applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.
James Waterhouse Buckley was 32 years old when The Wright brothers make their first attempt to fly with the Wright Flyer at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. The Wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, were two American aviators, engineers, inventors, and aviation pioneers who are generally credited with inventing, building, and flying the world's first successful airplane. They made the first controlled, sustained flight of a powered, heavier-than-air aircraft on December 17, 1903, four miles south of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. In 1904–05 the brothers developed their flying machine into the first practical fixed-wing aircraft. Although not the first to build experimental aircraft, the Wright brothers were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible.

Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.

James Waterhouse Buckley was 67 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
