Ghost Town Days Gone By
Every holiday I always seem to really miss the "good ol days". I dig out old photos, and just seem to get thrown back into yesteryear and past Memories. I am missing my grandparents something fierce this year. Our holidays always seemed to resonate around them. This Old Log home is where they lived when I was small. They built a "new" home on the same piece of property when I was around 8 years old. This old log home, The Barn and Bunk house were a Playground of sorts for My brothers, my cousin's and I. The building's were part of Okanogan's County Seat , Ruby Washington which has been a Ghost town now for many years. The Log Home was actually the stagecoach stop. When I was looking at some old photos a few days ago I came across something that Just jumped out at me. My grandparents had a HUGE garden. In almost all of the summer garden pictures there is an Old Enamel Pan--Do you remember those? They were some kind of metal and they had an enamel white coating with a red or blue trim?. Last night for some reason I started thinking about my grandmother's pan and wondering whatever happened to it. It was already old when I was a little girl, its white-colored porcelain chipped in many places, It was a large one with a Red trim. It was used to hold Vegetables as they were picked from the garden. I WANT that pan. I wonder where it is.
So I am On a Quest. I know I will Never have the original Pan..It was large- about 15" across but I am searching for one like it..One I can hang in my kitchen --Just because! If you happen to see one Please let me know!
