Very nice, but in memory probably more romantic than it was thought of at the time...

I am sure it was amazing to your father just how quickly things changed on the farm. I also am sure many farmers even a few decades ago are amazed as well.

Oh, dear Kabu! These are priceless stories and pictures. The wool was piled so high. It was so much work to get all the chores finished, I imagine. And you are right, it was not a throw-away society. When I was small, one could tell the remnants of the Great Depression survived deep in my family's memories and actions. Nothing was thrown away until every last option had been exhausted. Thoroughly enjoyable post, S. Sister.

It may have been harder on the back, but those old days

were lighter on the soul - people slept so well after a long day's physical labor, they could actually see what they'd done, counted the bales of hay, see the wood they'd chopped, taste the food they'd harvested from the garden. And yes, I do remember complaining about the work, the aches and pains, of being tired. But I also remember feeling necessary.
