Farm Days of Old

Came across a picture of an old thrashing machine the other day and it sure brought back some memories. I remember well back in the forties when it came thrashing time. I was just a young kid but we all worked in the fields getting the wheat and oats cut and shocked, and I remember watching for Mr. Austin to come down the road with his big Minneapolis Moline, pulling the huge thrashing machine behind him. He had the only thrasher in the area, so all the farmers used him to thrash their grain. I usually got to drive our old Farmall Regular, or the horses through the field picking up the shocks. The neighbouring farmers would always pitch in and go from farm to farm until everyone had their grain thrashed. You would see the big straw stacks pup up on one farm after the other. While all the men folk worked the thrasher, the ladies would be cooking up those great meals. Then the dinner bell would ring and we would all stop for lunch. Not just sandwiches. . . I'm talkin them beans and tater meals. Gosh what a great time we had. Never heard too many complaining about being sore from working so much, cause if you grew up doing farm work, you stayed in pretty good shape. People today just don't realize all the hard work that went into farming. It's such a shame that so many mom and pop farms fell by the wayside. I wouldn't trade my days on the farm for anything. Just wish my kids could have grown up on a farm as well. Didn't ever hear of too many kids getting into troubl, either. Didn't have time.
