Nobody's Opinion

One For the Farmers

Nobody Flashes

So, it’s Superbowl Sunday, and Groundhog Day.

But that won’t stop democrats from making fun of farmers, on CNN.

And not many of those farmers in Iowa will be going to their rallies, but they WILL be force to see all their commercials….and this one.

Most all of us had farmers in their family in the past. My great-great grandfather, father of one my grandmother, was a Prussian farmer, who got in his car on Sundays, and delivered his eggs. He had a big farm on the banks of the Mississippi, where once 10,000 years ago, the earliest people lived.

I still have the arrowheads and stone volcanic axes he found while plowing.

My mother said that at his funeral, every time a car drove to his funeral, someone would ring the bell.

She counted 100 rings. He was a kind man, and at night, he would sneak the dog into her room to sleep at her feet. She was just a little bit of a thing, and four. And HE adored her. He would tell her to go into the hen house and get the eggs, because she was so little she could fit into the houses.

I suppose that’s where she got her love of coloring Easter eggs. We did that together until she died…every Easter.

Grandpa Toelle would say, “Don’t tell grandma.” about the dog. That was back before they had furnaces. They use to put coal at the bottom of the bed.

I don’t think my mother loved anybody on this earth as much as she loved her farmer grandpa. A man who was loved by all.

God bless our President for helping them out. And God bless our farmers. No NFL player works as hard.

Enjoy.
