Ralph Why Cubs ????

Postby Ralph » Sun Jun 04, 2006 11:25 am

First a little history
I am 52 years old this month . I am happily married to the same wife for 30 + years and have 2 Great boys age 14 and 16 :D

I am the number 6 child out of 12 and i am a twin (paternal) the same mother and father for all 12 of us :D i was raised on tennant farms and came up the hard way. My Mother cooked with a wood stove and we heated with wood untill 1970 :!: If you ate it you grew it or Killed it :!: when the dinner call went out you was quick to the table if ya wanted your share :lol:

i have raised tobacco by the acres . worked Beef operations worked dairy operations. and have done about all the type feild grain and produce tpye crops that are common to the kentucky area.

I owned and operated a Remodeling company for 20 years mostly remodeling turn of the century German built houses . For the U S Dept of Housing Restoring them back to their original state . And in doing so you had to be correct down to the most minute detaill which means you had to fabricate a lot of your materials on site. :roll:

i currently manage maintenance on a 375 unit manufactured housing community and enjoy my job as it also supplys me with a verry large shop and and a place to play with my cubs :wink:

i have had 27 cubs to date and have restored a good number of them sold a few in their work clothes and parted a few so others could make the legend live on :!:
Cubs are my Hobby and it is what keeps my sanity 8)

A lot of you have met me and i have met a lot ot you Fellas as i tell all new people i send to the Forum it is like a big family reunion when we get togather only better cause there ain't some of them bickering about what Susie or Billy said :wink:

Thanks to a Great bunch Glad to be a part of it :!:

you are so right about the family thing. I've never felt so apart of something so great ever in my life. I feel so thankful for each and every person that has been so open-armed to me as I've grown up these past 3 years that i've been on here.
