It's harvest time

    I was raised on a small farm in south-central Illinois.  My dad is a retired farmer, but I still have great memories there, like riding in the combine for hours. On occasion I would fall asleep as I listened to the hum of the engine and watched the grain flow into the hopper, and my dad would pack me to the house at the end of his day.  I remember the first tractor I ever drove – a 706 International with a tricycle front end.  Red is still my favorite color even though I seem to be living in the “land of green”!  When you’re raised on a farm, you have favorite times of the year.  For me, and I would assume for many others, it is HARVEST TIME!
