Our oldest boys have been helping our neighbor pick squash and corn in his fields. It has been a great experience for them. Our neighbor is in his upper 80's and doesn't walk too well anymore. But he grows corn, squash, tomatoes-you name it-to keep busy. His wife passed away almost 2 years ago. The boys just eat up his stories of World War II and life on the farm. Today he let them ride his tractor (from what I hear, I don't know if he'll do that again.) Good neighbors are a blessing.
