And I try to do it well, I asked him "which brought you more satisfaction being a professor or being a clearing man?" He smiled and said "It's not fair to ask me a question like that. I think I would have to say that every age in life has its own rewards." "I'm still looking ahead "this 85 year old man said, "I do not want to die, there is too much fun in the world, and a lot of good folks a lot of them, and good books to read, and fish to catch, and pretty women to look at, and good men to know, why? Life is a joy!" C.C also visited pilot town Lousiana new the mouth of the Mississippi river. All the houses there are built on thick wooden legs, so they would not be washed away when the river floods. The community can be reached only by boat or sea plane. That is where he met Andy S. Andy S. was a hunter and fisherman. He read books written in the Greek language, and for ten years he was the only teacher in a one room school. Why did he stay in such a lonely place? "Well!" He said "There have trouble getting teachers to live here. Somebody has to teach the children." As they continued driving across the United States looking for interesting stories. The on the road team found a green mill on a little river in the state of Maryland. The man who operated the mill was Captain Frank L. He was 81 years old. The lean trast mill ground corn for settles in 1681. A hundred years later it ground corn for the army of Gen George Washington during Americas war for independence from Britain. And it was still grounding corn almost two-hundred years after that. It must have been the oldest continuously operated business in the country yet. The mill did not interest me as much as the miller. He had been working beside his little stone for sixty-five years. Was he tried of the job? "yes!" Frank L said "Yes, there really is no profity any more. But these farmers depend on me you see. There is no other place around here to grind thire corn?" In professor John Frank Schemitt, teacher Andy S. and miller Frank L. i saw Amercians of a sort i have not known before. There were linked to the places where they lived. And they worked not so much for themselves.
