Fishing in South Dakota
Growing up on the farm, one of the things I most looked forward to was my uncle Ted taking us fishing. I still hold those memories fondly in my heart. We did not have much for fishing equipment, just a throw-line with a few of Dad's nuts for weights, and we caught mostly bullheads, but just going to the lake was a treat in itself.
Now, I'm enjoying fishing again. Recently my grandson and I went ice fishing.

We can't forget the past
Sherry is out checking with the boys about lunch ___ what time and where they'd like to eat.
Growing up on the farm, spending the day farming, I always found eating lunch one of the best moments of the day.
On a day like the one in this photo, one not only enjoys a great meal, but gets to share it with friends and neighbors, talking about how the farming is going. And eating outdoors was a little like having a picnic.

Baling the ditch hay
I stopped to talk with Bill and Nella when they were out baling the ditch hay. Bill says he always likes to have some small square bales in the yard. He tells me, you never know when you'll need a few bales. There are always days in the winter when you have to get a cow and calf into the barn, and you have to feed and water them for a few days.
Farming is a way of life for Bill and Nella
For Bill and Nella, farming is a way of life. It is just part of their daily living. When a neighbor has to take a few days off to take in a wedding or visit family out of state, Bill and Nella step in and take care of his farm for him. Whether it's feeding and watering cattle or just looking after the farm, Bill and Nella just find it the neighborly thing to do.
