Photography (An Old Handle & A Western Poem)

THE CHUCK WAGON By Bruce Kiskaddon (1935)

I liked them old hands with their gaze cool and level.
They furnished the subject fer many a tale.
It was little they feared either man, beast or devil,
Them riders that follered the chuck wagon’s trail.

But the time I liked best, as I clearly remember;
Is one every cow puncher likes to recall.
When the work was all finished along in November,
And he follered the chuck wagon home in the fall.

Food: Chuck Wagon Recipes

Chuck Wagon Recipes

Ah, how the mind bounces along early in the morning: I had this photograph and had focused down into the axle. I thought how is that wagon wheel axle built? What are the components of an old wagon wheel? How did they lubricate (grease) those old wheels on journeys? 

I researched tallow, blackjack grease, block grease, coal tar grease and then I happened upon a greasing piece at Chuck Wagon Recipes and decided the food preparations looked far more interesting than the grease. Aren’t you glad?
