Since my father passed away, I've been steadily making my way through decades of historical artifacts. It's hard to imagine WHY people keep stuff, but Ima telling y'all I never know just WHAT I'll find next.
Sometimes, the stuff is downright weird. Like this story I found at the bottom of a 1920's newspaper article on my grandfather:
I Googled Captain Salisbury and couldn't find any mention of him finding freaks in China or Africa. Hell, for all I know he gave up his cockeyed idea and was just content to have a steak named after him.
Ol' Capt'n Sal didn't have to go all the way to China to find freaks. There are plenty of 'em everywhere if you just look at...
...what I found in our Colleywood backyard.
No, this isn't Captain Salisbury's cousin Captain Nemo, but he could pass for him with this fancy suit. This guy was sandblasting our pool and needed the getup to keep from blasting his own self.
Definitely not a freak. Just a smart guy.Blog Ping Site
