    Well, sometimes you just have to make do.

    Rescued as cubs, wolves pull a wagon in Butternut, Wisconsin, 1890's.

    Q: Why don’t mummies take time off?
    A: They’re afraid to unwind.

    Pappy, you have set the record on horse drawn stuff. I guess those are pulleys? Two horse power. Great picture!

    It is a great picture, isn’t it? The time it must have taken to move this beautiful house. Nowadays, it would probably just be demolished.

    I was told by an elderly neighbor that our house in Michigan had been moved to its present location from somewhere down the street. He said it was set on large rollers and pulled by a team of horses. As the house moved, the rollers were taken from the back and put in the front.

    I had always wondered why it sat every so slightly crooked on the foundation. That explained it. There were two beams holding up the house, across the basement, one massive wood one and one iron one. The house was originally built in 1924 and moved somewhere around 1935.
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.
