Aberystwyth of the Hinterland
In the hills of Wales
Gave safe harbor to an English lad
Who lived to tell some tales.
To celebrate his birthday on July 22, I will put this English lad’s story in the cloud this week. Each post will be a picture into a segment of his life – the childhood and teen years of the man who became my husband, Samuel Hayes. Hope you will enjoy his story. I think you will find his story interesting. The series will consist of six posts.
Challenge by Sammi Cox for a submission using 87 words on the prompt “Hinterland.”
About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you.

By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

Can’t wait for a tale of both birth to life!
To me he has an interesting “send off” into his young life. Hope you will enjoy it. Hopefully we have some folks still in England who will recognize some of his experiences.
I’m sure you/ he does— if he’s anything like you— he is well known and deeply loved!
Smiling at you.
What a great endeavour. Not sure how to access the cloud but thank you.
Faye, I probably did not use the right expression. I just meant I was sending it out here on the blog. Cyberspace. Hope you will enjoy it.
