All through the years I have listened to farmers talking about farming, and why they were farmers. I think most people like to get together with others whose work is like their own so they can talk shop, learn a few things from each other and engage in occasional gripe sessions. Sometimes you catch a group of farmers at the coffee shop, sometimes at the repair shop, the sale barn and so on. I even remember farmers talking when we were at the Thursday night singings at Shady Grove schoolhouse in the 1940s.
