The Oct. 8 front-page story headlined “Right of way” serves as a great reminder of human patience.
This should remind drivers and readers to thank a farmer when you find you have to slow down and safely negotiate around their large equipment (especially on our beautiful back county roads) while they try to transport things down the roadways when less traveled. Still, drivers tend to drive way too fast.
Slow your pace in this fast-paced world. Also, watch for crossing deer, pets, school buses and children. Take a deep breath and this could save your life.
Oh, by the way, take time to thank a farmer next time you eat a meal or drink some milk.
I’m married in a farming family, and I love my farmers and farming neighbors.
