We were traveling today with our load of furniture from Grahamstown on our way back to East London via Port Alfred. This was after church in Port Alfred as we departed from Elder and Sister Wheeler’s. They were nice enough to have us for lunch today for a few minutes after church. However, their company was so good that we over stayed just a bit and got on the road at around 3:00.
I thought this picture looked a bit like what I pictured those on their way to California in the book “The Grapes of Wrath”which I had to read as a young man in school. The Wheelers felt like all we needed was a rocking chair and it would have been more “Jed Clampett“ from the Beverly Hillbillies, the TV show of our youth.
