This year, in fact this coming Saturday, we will have the last Dust Bowl Days celebration out at the Sunset School near Lamont California. I think this may be the 28th year for it. I know my wife and I and many of our friends, and family have gone out there for years. We get there early and have a genuine cooked by Okies or their offspring poor folks breakfast of biscuits and gravy, the sausage on the side is a nice added touch. There's a live band of some of the old timers who played around Bakersfield. We'll visit the remaining section of the camp, like the ones I stayed in when we first came to California. It's pure dee nostalgia and I will miss it. There's stuff from the past to look at, but now the peddlers have moved in, trying to make a buck off selling imported junk. There's still plenty to see, by the end of the day, you're tired from walking around, but glad you got to go back in time for a little while. I will miss our annual pilgrimage, but young folks are too busy to think of tradition, and without them, nothing survives. Another glimmer of the past, and my own past will soon fade into the sands of time.
