12 Jul Emma: Staying Busy In Elk City
The Misener crew is back in Elk City, Okla., repairing an all crop head for one of our customers -we’re stripping it down to the nuts and bolts, literally. I’m so grateful to have the resources and knowledge to do these tasks. I suppose I can thank my dad for that. He always said there are no such things as stupid questions and he really was an open book. I still have no idea where he stored all of this knowledge. He literally knew a combine inside and out – any farm equipment really. He could take a serial number (from an old John Deere tractor) and tell you how many were made, and what kind of options you could have put on.
He had such a passion for his job, because it’s not just a job – it’s a way of life.
This post is a little late, but I wanted to share our Fourth of July celebration. We were blessed to have it off this year, which never happens. We got to have a lovely homemade meal, enjoying family and good times.
Hopefully my next update will be from the field. Until then, be safe and God bless!
