This little book that I am writing is a little History About Sandy bay. The Book is Name or titled 52 years ago At about that time I was 24 years of age Now I am 76 and a Great change took place between those years. At that time living was very Cheap. There were lots of things you Could get for nothing. But as the years went by Everything changed. Even the Minds of the human race. The Only thing that Never Change was the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I start school in English at 7 years of Age. I finish English at the age of 14 then I went to Spanish School. My teacher was the Man that the Spanish School Name After Juan Brooks. That was my teacher the first year. My 1st TEACHER WAS Brinford McField. At that time I was 19 years of age. At that time My teacher McField Became Supervisor of the Public Schools of the Bay Islands the prof therefore took all if His Super Students and put them out in Differents places to teach. We teach by Horario which is called daily guide at this time I was in Camp Bay 1932 and part of 1933 Then I Came Down to Sandy Bay The Remainder of the year until 1933 so I Continued to teach in Sandy Bay my hometown for 14 years until 1947 I got married in 1934 and begin to make children then things got real tough with us. But I can Praise and Thank God for his Blessing bestowed upon us. He Had given me a wife that stick to me through tough and thin. We had a children to care for I was only getting 60 pounds from School And the Government was not paying when you go to the treasure Municipal. He could not give you nothing, So my wife although She is worn and faided now but She was a Beautiful woman good cook and first class in Manual labor. I remember in the Moon lightI and my wife would sit on the beach and catch the bigest Snapper and Shad sand grunts we would light a tourch and walk on the Bar in the Sea grass we would find or catch lobsters that weights 12 and 14 lbs. and you could get those days was 0.50 Limpiras. You could pick up a big broad Counch that four would make s good taste chowder. You Could Buy anything for 0.2 Lempira. Beef was tow bits which was 9" per lb pork rind which was 6" per lb we had no tv No Radios no prensa, no Diario no football no Base Ball to read about all we had was our wife Eat Sleep Make love and have childrens. But I thank God today that we are reaping the labor of making love. Even when I was very wild But My childrens Stick us together through the Storm or like. I road the Ship in 1950 and I Stayed on Ships trying to make a Start in life until 1965 at that time all the children was grown. Some have their papers to stay or work in the U.S.A. During that time I was preparing for the future. I traveled all over Europe I crossed the North Atlantic 11 times I've from a utility Man to a Steward I've been on freight Ships Bananas Ship Passingers Ships and the last I've been on was a freight and passinger We sold Her in Greennoc Scottland in 1965 the 10th of Janurary and the 12th of Janurary I was in Roatan. Nevermore to Sail the white fleets I cam home set up a little Shop and I ran in the Hole. In 1975 ten years later I formed a Coffee and Sandwich Stand out that prove a failour. I found out that my family was getting more than I was. When the Meat was finish and the break was finish there was no Money to Buy M ore So I close it down and make a Fry Chicken Shack and people Still calling for More Even from Germany MyFame spread as big with the Fried Chickens, as it was with the Ladies. I made a great Mistake when I Never took my wife along with me when I leave for the Mainland in 1947.
