I was 12 years old when my dad, Anton Blaha, put this cedar corner post in the pasture. I took a spike (then referred to as a 1D common nail) and punched my name into the bucket in 1935.
These are two of my grandsons, Noah Pinkman from Lincoln, Neb., (right) and Hunter Koch, Yankton, S.D. They are both 12 in this photo, the same age I was when I put the bucket in place. If you don’t recognize me, I am a little older than 12 in this photo.
The fence changed because of irrigation; my looks changed because of irritation.
St. Paul, Neb.
