The season has changed to Spring, according to the robins bob, bob, bobbing along with their song in GriggsDakota. The reality is not as clear as the robin's song.
As the years pass we find equipment changes and we have things in the yard that are no longer useful.
Like combine headers from days gone by.
This equipment has parts that can be salvaged and pieces that can be sold as scrap iron.
It was nostalgic to pull out this old relic. It was the first piece of farm equipment that Farmer Fred owned. A long ago birthday gift from the farmer's daughter.
Each piece, in turn, will be loaded onto our trailer and hauled to the salvage yard where it will be sold.
Sunset for the old and useless in GriggsDakota as the sun rises on another farming season and new uses for the old headers somewhere else in the world.
The lake has opened up and we are optimistic that field work will commence in about 10 days.
