My second thought was working for Mr. Osborn. He was a teacher at our school but he was only about ten years older than us. I realized that for the first time as I sit typing this. He and his wife owned a farm and an antique store and were building a house out of an old barn. My best friend and I never knew what we were getting into when they called. We cleaned a cistern out, gutted a 100 + year old house to salvage the hand hewn beams, rescued a cast iron kitchen stove from a barn where it had sunk almost a foot into the dirt floor, and numerous other odd jobs. When I first saw Larry, Darrel, and Darrel on the Newhart Show I thought of Harlan and me working for the Osborns, anything for a buck.
I really regret that my kids did not get to grow up on a farm like I did.
With the big bales of today, stacking is a dying skill.
