Today I stood with my coworkers at the grain elevator - in the country - in Kansas - (who would have ever thunk it?) It is 'harvest' time. Nothing better prepares you for an understanding of life in a farming community than my job right now.
There is teamwork and dedication, along with camaraderie, gaiety, laughter and high spirits. This is what the people who farm - live for. Wheat planting along with milo, corn and soybean harvest...the beginning and the ending of the cycle. It is exciting to be a part of, partake in and observe. Hubster is hauling grain - an important 'game piece' as well. I knew there was a reason that October is a favorite month of mine. I am certain that this October will create fond memories.
