Ferdie to Bob

    Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.

    In the German tradition, they lived in and build HouseBarns. The people and their cattle lived in the same structure (not pigs). Cows and Cattle on one end, and living quarter on the other end. A big doorway was on one end where the threshing wagons pulled in with wheat and grain. The Beams over the Threshing doors would be carved to include the names of the owners, building, and prayers to protect them from fire and to the Holy Spirit. I have a photo of the preserved carvings from one of my great great grandparents.

    That is very cool, Frank. Too bad no one saved the door.
