This scene looks kind of serene, but it was actually NOT. I was trying to get some air because I was driving a combine WITH BROKEN AIR CONDITIONING. It was like driving a mobile sauna. Full of that itchy shredded fiberglass insulation. My hayfever was so bad… well, only people with hayfever would understand. Also I had some kind of horrific back injury. I look like I’m leaning in the photo but actually that was as straight as I could stand for about 4 days.

Thankfully we got the crop in the bin and I’m on the mend, physically and mentally!

There is nothing like a wheat harvest to make you realize how easy you have it most of the time.

And it’s definitely a family bonding experience to be out in the field taking your lumps with everyone else…
