My Dad held his annual old time wheat threshing again this year using his steam engine to power the threshing machine.

We had an abundance of warm sunshine. Temperatures were in the nineties. Despite the heat, we had a good crowd and everyone had a wonderful time. Almost two hundred people attended the event.

Wheat threshing got underway about 10:30, while down at the farm-house, the ladies were preparing food and making ice cold lemonade.

Lunch was served under the trees in the yard at 1:00.

This was followed by more wheat threshing.
