Moving On

Hello Dear Reader,
About the time that Wes and Mary moved into their own home Wes’s work on the aqueduct was finished. He got in touch with a man by the name of Victor Smith (not our uncle) who was planning to build a home. Wes was able to contract the labor and he hired Ray Taylor, his former partner, and Jim Freshwater, who lived just down the street, to work for him.

After that house was built, the three men went into partnership and did two or three small jobs. But World War II was happening and a new adventure was awaiting Wes.
