Re: Anyone watch Dust Bowl on PBS?

BA, the dust bowl video was a great film and a reality check for all in agriculture.  I'm going to relate a true story of a bachelor that farmed in Gove County KS during the dust bowl days and he was a survivor.  He was very frugal.  He didn't let a penny slip through his fingers.  He had three  tractors, a newer one, an old tractor and one in between.  When it came time to change the engine oil only the newest tractor got the new oil.  You can probably guess the rest.  The tractor in between got the used oil from the newest tractor and the oldest tractor got the used, used oil from the in between tractor!!  Probably not a good practice by today's standards.  I'm not sure what he did with the used, used, used oil from the oldest tractor but I'm sure he found a good use for it. 

Still dry here too in C IA
