What are some of your favorite or most memorable childhood memories?
I probably can come up with several, but will have to cut it short for now.
Always enjoyed watching a local farmer, Mr Hankins when he'd drive one of his tractors from town to plow or bale hay. Think he only owned Farmalls. I'd get my toy tractors out and pretend that I was helping him. When the wheat was being combined, man, I really loved the smell of it. That was usually always in late May.
Another one was when my family would all go to a small town to visit the little grocery store on the weekends. That little store closed many years ago, but the building is still there. Sometimes my brother and I would get to have a frozen ice cream bar, either banana or chocolate I think. We'd go outside and watch to see if a freight train was going to come down the tracks, while enjoying our frozen treats. I was always looking for tractors and combines too.
