Chopping corn is one of Ryan's favorite farm things to do. Usually, call it luck or coincidence, the corn is ready to be chopped Labor Day weekend. Nice, because my brother Reuben, and Cousin Lee can come help Ryan.  Bummer because we have not had a "Long, last weekend of Summer" in years.  Due to an exceptional dry season, the corn was ready to go last Friday.

Ryan Chopped, Scott drove the truck.

Ron drove the packing tractor, Robert drove too.

I made sandwiches.

Ryan Chopped, John drove the truck.

Van packed the pile, and Zach drove the tractor.

And I made the sandwiches.

Gerald worked on the pile, 

and I made the sandwiches.

Ryan tried to kill himself, 

And I stopped making sandwiches.

We all were very sad that Uncle Reuben, Cousin Lee, and Wesley and Logan were not here.  Elizabeth said: "Chopping is NO fun without Wesley and Logan".  And I agreed.
Maybe they'll come Labor Day weekend anyway, and we can do "fun" stuff instead of work!

I'm pretty sure I was there once for the chopping. Whether I was or wasn't I have made plenty of sandwiches for boys on tractors.

you amaze me with your photography foresight in all your posts. Who takes that many pictures of sandwiches?!?! But it wouldn't have been as good of a post without them.
