Illustration Friday "Idle"



A couple of years ago, my husband and I took our kids up to a farm in Washington County, Nebraska where one day each fall, the farmer has an open house and he shows people how people used to grow corn and operate without machinery. That day, these tractors sat idle while we learned how corn was checked, rope and candles were made by hand, and transportation was by horse drawn carriage.
