What is one question you want to ask someone but you know you'll never get the chance to?

I would love to ask my great-grandparents what motivated them to migrate all the way to Bakersfield, CA, which was nothing much more than a railhead after the Great Chicago Fire burned them out to start what we would call a brew pub today when they had no experience in brewing or running a bar. The political climate and impending Franco-Prussian war make it pretty clear why they left what is now part of Germany to immigrate to the U.S., and Chicago was their logical landing place since it was the furniture making center for the entire West at the time and employed a huge number of German immigrant woodworkers, which was my grandfather's trade. And desiring to leave Chicago after the big fire is understandable, but such drastic life changes/gambles with three young infants in tow makes one wonder what the motivation was.

The folks that traveled out west to settle the frontier were brave, innovative people, living on the edge and succeeding. They made things happen and we owe them for the country we have today.

@Roadsterrider True, but it was usually younger folks just starting out in life and looking for opportunities to get started, or older ones seeing a business opportunity where their established skills were desperately needed in a frontier setting. In this case you had a family man with 3 toddlers, a skilled craftsman in an industry based in urban settings, chucking his craft and launching a whole new business operation in a field which he had no apparent experience, in an isolated spot literally at the end of the line. Seems like a strange gamble to take with your family after already escaping a war in Europe and a Great Fire in Chicago.

@dancingtongue Not everyone has the vision or the courage to step up to the plate, I applaud those who do. I am grateful there was a Chuck Yeager, a Neil Armstrong, Sam Houston, and David Crockett to step up when needed to move the country along.

Me and my mom used to call or text each other after episodes of certain tv shows. I can’t do that anymore she passed away in 2019 I haven’t watched those shows since.

Ask James Madison to see what's going on and ask him what he'd do to help safeguard against the sorts of failures which he never conceived possible...

I'd ask why she pretended to want to be with me while openly flirting with so many other guys. It gutted me.
eMortal · M
Some women are built that way. The attention of one man can never be enough even if that man is the love of her life.@OzDiver
