--Remembering Norman WOOD. Norm was generally meticulous in the way he went about doing things. Whether it was in handling square bale of hay on the elevator or stacking in the barn, rebuilding his hay wagon, or cutting and piling fire wood in the bush, there was a right way and a wrong way. If one happened to do it wrong, one soon found out. In an earlier Remembrance, I told how Norm and Roy had built the driveway into our home and how well it has stood the traffic of these many years. The road building did not stop there. Norm took it into his head to rebuild the old road through the swale down to the lake. It had been part of the horse pasture many moons ago. With his tractor and wagon he hauled all the large flat stones to build up the sides of the road before infilling. Each flat stone was put in place, not thrown. A small culvert was set in place to allow flow of water in the swale. Then came the dumping of granular from his pit, all shovelled off the back of the wagon. Hardly finished, along came the truck from Superior loaded with concrete tiles. Without a word, Norm waved the driver to back up to the lake and over the culvert only recently installed. Wow! No problem! Ron WOOD was at the other end. He unloaded the tile. That was a significant day!
Don Holmes.
