    Ellis Island
    A fresh start. My wife and I set off for a better life. Scotland was not a place to start a family. We needed money and the field work wasn't paying so we packed up and moved on to the next stage of our life.

    Bar fight
    With my friend and co-worker David we went to a bar to get the day out of our heads. once we got there the slurs and bad mouths hit like a hammer. eventualy we both had enough i pulled a gun out and got shoved off my stoll then it got out of controll everyone started througing punches and bottles. The only thing going throug my head was "What have I done"
  • WWI

    World War One has arrived and we are deep in. most of my friends and colleages have been drafted. My wife is going in and out of panic I keep trying to convinc her everything will be fine. But her panic gets much worse anytime I tell her who gets drafted.
