So, now, the end of the tale. I took the newspaper clipping to my brother Mark who lives on the Tompkins place. It was a cold January day, much like today, but he said, "Do you want to see where that is?" and we took off across the field. I have had bad luck with cameras and memory cards over the past few years, but found that I hadn't lost all this morning when I stumbled across the file.
Please consider this a tribute to the generations of farmers of Johnson County, MO, you know who you are, the unsung heroes, the careful stewards of our precious resource, the fertile earth.
