My father was born in 1929 on a farm and like Nic, he said he didn't have it that bad. He said they bartered for what they didn't have.

His first job was hitting the cows in the head with the sledgehammer as the came down the chute. He wired their house for electricity and was the only electric farm in Fayette Iowa at the time. A one bulber.

My mom was born 1939 a polish/German and went thru the holocaust. She won't say a word, so I have no clue about what she went thru.
