Great! It brings back memories of growing up around cornfields in Indiana. We're still corn and 'taters' folk down home in Alabama.

Dea - very cute! Not being from that part of the world, there were references I didn't understand, but by the end of the article I did. Very enjoyable!

Dea, What a great photo! It may sound silly to folk who love the new hybrids, but my wife and I still love "field" corn (picked a bit early). The one silly thing I remember about Indiana corn fields, was losing my glasses during the autumn of my high school senior year in (at that time) my girl friend's father's fields while gathering corn for what we called "tick tacking". I think it cost me the opportunity of being another great hoosier high school roundball player - well, it did throw my shot off a bit! The autumn still tugs at us - we'll be attending my wife's 50 year high school class reunion back in Indiana, and most are still alive. I'm a youngster. My 50 year reunion isn't until next year. lol
Have a great day!
