Several years ago, I took a trip back east to my old stompin' grounds in Illinois.
A lot of my family lives in that area, and I was looking forward to seeing all of them. One of the towns I spent time in, was Hoopeston, Illinois. While there, we took the time to go see the old farm outside of town, where I spent a lot of fun summers.
I don't remember animals other than chickens on the farm when I was a kid. However, when we arrived at farm, I was surprised to see Buffalo roaming the fields. I had seen Buffalo before, but I had never gotten as close to these large, powerful critters as I did that day.
Other than the main house, not much of the old farm as I remember it, remain. But it was still a nice visit a place I fondly remember.
