Farmer for a day...

So Dave...when are you going to teach me how to drive tractor...

And so my farmer friend gave me the privilege of riding along during corn harvest yesterday. Drove a little tractor...put a little feed into the silo...drank a little ice cold mint tea from a jar (why does it taste so good from a mason jar)...

Brought back memories of rice harvest in Louisiana...riding along in the combine or cart...shoveling at the bins...dinners in the field...

And so I got to stay in touch with my agrarian roots...thanks Dave.
