Dilapidated farmhouse holds memories of a rustic youth

It’s a handsome Québécois farmhouse and it stands beside what was once called the King’s Highway. It has been part of my life since its heyday as the nerve centre of a thriving farm. It was there that, starting at about age 10, I got my first taste of farm life: gingerly scattering handfuls of grain for the chickens clustered by my feet.

Born in a small country home in New Brunswick in March of 1919, Ernie had to grow up fast. After 12 years living at home, he was sent to live with a minister for company and to help him out. But the minister was very abusive towards him, so Ernie, as he calls it, ran/walked away to his uncle's house 41 miles away, and he did it in one day!
