Larry, you and I are about the same age. I have a son that turned out great despite the raising that his mother gave after we divorced.
I have always felt that I am on the low end of the totem pole but there are a lot of people that respect me for the knowledge that I bring to the table.
I am in the process of retiring form the military after 26.5 years and feel kinda lost as to finding a new job but know that I will, may not be making as much as I want to but I will survive.
I have been the primary care giver for my dad who had a very bad accident last November and I have never been this close to him and tell him that I love him multiple times everyday.
I am also in the process of getting the farm in shape for planting in the spring. Farm has not been worked of taken care of for better than 10 years.
All my equipment is OLD. Newest piece is a tag along swather built in 1968. All is in working condition and I have the books and knowledge to maintain it. By the way, it is all paid for.
I also have a few very good friends. You know the ones that you can call on and they will drop everything to come help in your time of need. And I am the same way.
Larry, I thoroughly enjoy and anticipate the pictures and stories that you post here. It gives me insite to the differences in land and farming styles on the opposite sides of this great country. You have nothing to be ashamed of as you and your wife have raised a great daughter, you accomplish quality work and have a great imagination on what to do with things that others consider waste.
I applaud your resourcefulness and your down home sensibility. I also want to say that you are the salt of the earth. This country needs more like you.
