Default Need help with pitcher edit

Anybody have a good photo edit program and willing to help me doctor this old photo of my maternal grandparentsí farm house in Oklahoma? We have very few pics, and this is the best one. The 100 ac farm was east of Grant near Shoals and Frogville and has been demolished for many years.

I enjoyed some great times there as s child! (No old fogey jokes! ) When my grandparents moved to Hugo in 1959 or 1960, my dad could have bought it for somewhere between $100-$200 per ac...but he had no need to own land in Oklahoma!

No help, but that is a dang good idea. Makes me want to do some with some old photos I have of family properties. Will be interested to see what can be done with yours.

That's a great "pitcher" from the 1800s!

Sorry, couldn't resist. I can't help you with what you want to do. I love to see old houses and the design and architecture. Some of it is really cool and some of it makes you wonder why it was designed/built like that.

The house had electricity but no plumbing. We took baths in a washtub with well water warmed on the coal oil stove. Several people bathed in the same bathwater! Everybody wanted to be the first one to bath! The heat during the winter came from a single wood-burning box stove in the living room. The other rooms were cold, and we slept on feather mattresses under multiple quilts so heavy that once you were under them, you could barely turn over! The outhouse was the furthest building from the house, just past the chicken house. I would NOT go to the outhouse at night, afraid of the chicken snakes. I swear, they were as big as pythons!!! Some great memories! That front porch concrete block/step is now in my back yard.

I love hearing stories about old home places like this! Did you ever get to hunt the place, Burnadell?

I don't ever remember seeing any deer in the area back then, but deer are plentiful there now. My dad used to take my brother and me squirrel hunting in the woods. I got my first gun, a bolt action .410 Mossberg back then. There is now a hunting preserve about a mile or two from where the house was:

My young aunts (now deceased) used to scare us with stories of black panthers in the woods at night! My grandad had a mean rooster that chased me once, jumped on my back and dug his spurs in! I also remember going into the watermelon field, hauling them out in a wooden, mule pulled wagon; then slicing one under a shade tree and eating it...wonderful memories!!!

Great memories, thanks for sharing. I’m sure $200 was a lot of money back then.

One does not edit a baseball pitcher; one coaches them. However, one can edit a pitcher of a baseball.

Good stuff! I remember my grandad filling me with stories about the Goat man and black panthers down hills lake road. Lol

Didnít mean to derail the thread. Lol

I could talk for hours about places like this! Maybe a Longview/Tyler gtg is in order....

Used to pick peaches in Frogville about 15 to 20 years ago. The old man that had the orchard and garden kept it immaculate but he passed away and the place went to pieces. He had a beautiful place with some of the best peaches I have ever had.

Do you have a larger version? You'll have better luck with it if you do. If you have one, send it to me and I'll fix it up. caseymorris at texasbowhunter dot com

Did that house have a sleeping porch on the back? My mom used to tell how when when she just a kid, her parents had a house with a sleeping porch. One of the older ranch houses out here has one. I think a second house may have an even larger version.

What I sent was an iPhone pic of an old picture that was probably taken with a box camera. Let me see if I can scan the picture and send you that.
