Were you born in this house Ernie?

“Nope, across the road next to the road
That goes up the hill to the mine
We had a two room house there
The mine started to pay & they built this house
Closer to the river, & the barn
This one was built in 1900, I barely remember
The other place, this is mostly where I’ve lived
Except for the  War..
Lonely since my wife died, had to stop driving last year,
Mrs. Ownby, gets me anywhere I need to go;
my daughter comes down once a year.., what?
Oh, yeah I fished a lot in the summertime, limit on trout?
Oh, it was a hundred back then,
Lots of times I caught one-twenty-five!”
