Here is a memory from my uncles who were raised on a small farm in Missouri.
"We raised cotton, which is a backbreaking crop. I remember shopping cotton for hours on end while our dad, who was a schoolteacher, went uptown to play pinochle with his buddies. You are chopping the weeds out, but they come right back. I vowed everyday not to be in the farming business. That's how I got into cars, though, because I could fix farm machinery and our ratty old truck. I never farmed for a living." James
Klinkhardt, Hayti, Mo. who died last month at the age of 92.
