“Summertime – and the livin’ is easy;
Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high…” — George Gershwin
I remember summertime! I grew up on a farm — and the livin’ was not easy! I remember summertime! Cultivating acres of corn. Cutting wheat with a Binder and putting the bundles of wheat into shocks; later, threshing the wheat and hauling the grain to the grainery.
