And now Harvest …
I can remember late, late one fall night traveling back to Port Clinton, Ohio from visiting my daughter at Bowling Green University and coming along state route 105 which clings to the Portage river all the way to Bowling Green on one side with vast fields on the other side and in between little farming towns along that route. Rocky Ridge, Clyde, Woodville, Pemberville, Oak Harbor…It was totally black when all the sudden on a little stretch of it all the sudden I heard a noise to my left and I looked and there in the fields lumbered a huge harvester, with lights ablaze reaping long after the sun had set but in a hurry to get the crops in before the fall rains came. It just seemed so scary. Maybe its the Mrs. Brisby (the rats of N.I.H.M.) in me but I couldn’t help but be shook by the sound (like a dinosaur) and the blazing light that thing set upon the field. All by itself out there in the dark changing the face of the field. I think I made it home in half the time. Harvest Home, you know…blast that Stephen King!
