The flying farmer

Ralph and his Tri-pacer. Ralph just finished putting in a new runway on his farm. His still has not put up the wind sock, but the wind towers east of his farm make ideal wind socks. Probably when he was a young farmer he used to hope that his tractor would break down in the field so he could fly his plane to Pipestone for parts.

John at work

John has changed and repaired 21 truck tires in the last 3 days. There are days when he has changed and fixed as many as 12. He is hoping this day will not be one of them.

Fishing is what he loves to do

When Glen is not farming, there is nothing he would rather do than fish. He takes time to go fishing just about every month of the year, rain or shine.

Hard at work

Now I understand why Lester is always in a big hurry to get to work. This what he does when he says he goes to work.

The big one got away

Lester is showing off a 17 1/2 inch walleye he caught. The big one he caught flipped out of the boat and got away. Now if he had told me this fish story I would not have believed him, but I saw it with my own eyes.
