Pick Shuck Eat
Ah, a good card for following on the past two days. With Wands we get to the action, the putting one or more of those really good ideas to work. As we've passed across Minnesota and Wisconsin (588 miles today) they are beginning to harvest untold acres of corn. Dried on the stalks, the big harvesters come in, pull the stalks, take the cobs off, shuck the corn, remove the kernels from the cob, grind up everything not corn, and return it to the earth. Leaving us with pure food. What kind of mind can think up a piece of equipment that can do that? Perhaps this young page?
"Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you're a thousand miles from the corn field." ~ Dwight David Eisenhower 1890-1969
