Title Farmer's Son, The Agony and the Ecstasy
Description trained to straddle the windrows as they pulled the rake to the place where the driver "tripped" it by stepping on a pedal and causing the tines to flip up and leave the hay in a pile. I raked hay from all directions until that cook was probably big enough to provide 10-12 minutes of pitching tiae for two men. Its diameter roust have been as wide as the hayrack was long. It was a masterpiece of teen-ager foolish fun. I can't remember what my brothers and my father said when they saw it. Since the oldest one didn't like to squander tijne he may have said I probably wasted half-an-hour horsing around} the one three years older than I, with the rivalry that sometimes prevails between "brothers nearly the same age, might have mumbled that that was about what you'd, expect from a dumb kid brother. Ky father? Hell, he could have removed his felt hat, scratched his head-and chuckled quietly. He was like that.
