My grandfather and his best friend shared equipment and helped each other harvest their crops*rm

Brings back memories of harvest in the Panhandle. Mom and we girls cooked for the farm hands who mostly consisted of our boyfriends who hired out to Dad. We rode in the grain trucks with our boyfriends to the granary.

We used to ride in the back into town to take the wheat to the silo (?). The local kids taught us to chew it like gum.
