My grandpa liked to teach skills like milking a cow or driving a nail. It seems he needed someone to supervise doing the chores. I do not remember allot of useless conversation.
I am glad he did not raise cotton.
As I grew older there were chickens to be caught and harvested" as they say now. We said "killed" back then.
Driving tractors came next then his car.
Old men were teachers back then.
