Hicky-Bo's Treasures or Grandpa's Junk
From his first letter home there were always two things on his mind; his family's welfare and making money. Youngest son of a general store owner, "Hicky-Bo" was taught almost from birth to love God, take care of the family and make a good living. Much like every other able bodied man during the time, he was called to serve his country and battle the enemy during WWII.
Thoughts of home and family surfaced at every opportunity. He wanted to make his daddy proud and assure him he was going to be alright. He wanted his father to know he was a man who could provide for the family and do it well. While "Hicky-Bo" was off fighting in the war and dreaming of home, his father was fighting his own battle. He too was fighting to stay alive. Health problems were coming on strong; his time was drawing near.
"Hicky-Bo" came home from the war to find his father in ill health so he set out to prove he had learned well, all that his daddy had taught him about making a living. He worked hard at everything and wasted nothing. He was creative in his business ventures; he handled things others wouldn't dare. He made his living in various ways and he was always a Junk Man.
Always taking in the damaged, ...tired, ...broken. He learned to fix, repurpose and sell whatever he came across and he did a fine job too! That time has come and gone for "Hicky-Bo" ...time to move on.
I walked through that once junky yard remembering the treasures he collected ...old metal fans, bicycles and, well, just about anything he could have ever wanted. Off to the side was a small area still being cleaned up. There is where I found the hubcaps. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make my grandpa proud.
Call it junk. Call it recycled art. I call it a toast to "Hicky-Bo" -- A man who believed in making a living the old fashioned way.
