HARVEST TIME MEMORIES........


They're takin' off the wheat now,here in Ohio!
I pass by all those fields and see the farmers workin'.The sights and the smells just take me back.I wish I was there again myself!
We Didn't have anything fancy,just what equipment we could afford.The first time I remember was with an old pull type combine.this rode behind the tractor and didn't cut that much of a swathe.We later had an old Gleaner but cabs and A/c were not an option!I remember the feel of the wheat between my barefoot toes,as I shoveled it from the wagons! later we did have an enclosed cab I think it was a Massy! I fondly recall those days now,but back then I never imagined that i'd one day leave it al behind.Back then it was just another chore and really wasn't that pleasent.The dust and the chaff grew so thick on your face that you could scrape it off with a knife! The smell was more an odor that you wished would dissapear,and the hours were so monotonous that you'd wish you weren't there.... that was then
But today I'm watchin' and wishin' that I was there again.. I'd gladly give up this job to sit in that ol' cab again

The closest I came to that was living in South East Texas. Little town called Nederland (quite appropriately named by the way). Difference is "The Golden Triangle" was mostly refineries. OH the STENCH! EW! But i still miss it and I'd love to move out there again!

Most older memories are remembered with great fondness. I do the same thing. Life seemed alot more simple to me back then. Probably because I didn't have as many responsibilities back then as I do now with being a single mom. Your story is making me think back. Thank you my friend!

I grew up in the suburbs, but living in the country now, I'm learning lots of things about it. I live next to a cattle farm, and I am definitely learning lots of things there! Especially around mating season! lol...Anyway, As I drive to work each morning I see the farmers getting their tractors and other machinery ready to go. It's really awesome. I learn something new every year. Thanks for this bit of memory, spunky!
