October 12: Old Farmers Day

“When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of human civilization.”

– Daniel Webster

farmer-on-tractorAs harvest finishes up, it’s a great time to pay a little extra respect to those “founders of human civilization” who provide the backbone of society and work the land season by season, no matter how undependable it is. Happy Old Farmers Day!

“Those who work their land will have abundant food,
but those who chase fantasies have no sense.”

Proverbs 12:11

P.S. Don’t forget about the International Moment of Frustration Scream Day!
