Back in our crazier, restless mornings, I hitchhiked across the midwest. I was hopping from neighborhood to town, residing job to job, and packing up and leaving whenever I got bored enough! During 1 of our adventures, I decided to offer our services as a farm hand on a rather big farm. I grew up in the country and used to help out on our Grandpa’s ranch all the time. I didn’t guess this would be much different, let me tell you though, it was a taxing life, and that farmer worked me hard. I was compelled to stick around though, because it just felt right. I was developing a nice sense of discipline, not to mention a nice tan and some great muscles. That being said, the seasoned servant’s quarters that he put me up in was super sizzling in the Summer and frigid cold in the winter. In the winter, he made sure I had plenty of heavy blankets and nice Winter clothing. He even gave me this heater. It ran pretty hot, but every evening I was half afraid that it would set the whole new home on fire. In the Summer though, I had far less luck. I got some rickety seasoned oscillating fans and that was about it. Let me tell you, after a long, hard day of now working out on that farm, it would have been amazing to come apartment to some absolutely nice climate control. Looking back on those years, I am so blissful I finally settled down and so blissful that I live in a apartment with excellent Heating, Ventilation, and A/C!
