Digging up Bones – Part 2
Still sorting through my files – hard copy. More old photos spill and flutter to the floor.
One of my dad is I haven’t seen in years. It’s dated 1929 – Aruba, an island in the Lesser Antilles in the Southern Caribbean Sea off the coast of Venezuela.
Standard Oil was building a refinery there. Dad was a welder and had signed on for a year. Good money to be made . . . a long way from home.
Aruba 1929 – Downtown
Not many places to spend money. Lots of room to build back then.
Dad came home loaded and paid cash for a brand-new fire engine red Buick convertible.
Too bad he didn’t but some land when he was there!
