Moms scare

My brother and I were 7 and nine yrs old respectively and we were always watching what the older boys and Dad did on the farm up in Tiffin Oh. as we grew. Death was a common factor as with butchering time of pigs cattle and chickens- but this upset our and Mom's day. We were watching Dad try to start the old Huber tractor with the crank as it sat in the barn one mid morning on a July day in 1958. Dad was turning the crank and occasionally we were introduced to some new words we found out later were followed with a taste of lye soap. Anyway as Dad tried to start it, it backfired and the crank came around and hit Dad on the nose- knocking him out cold and just shy of total removal of his nose! Well, we ran to the house and sat at the table and requested a drink of water from Mom as she prepared lunch. We must have looked a little shocked and she asked what was wrong with us and we replied 'Dad's dead'. She turned as white as a sheet and said'What did you say?' and we repeated'Dad's dead!' She ran to the barn thinking the worst with us right behind. Mom never drove a car in her life and she brought the old straight eight buick around in 2nd gear and we pulled this 6'4'' giant into the car and headed to the hospital in 2nd. Dad was not dead, lived many years longer but had a crooked nose- and Mom- she never let us forget that day and we switched to the old John Deeres as the fly wheel was safer to start!!
