Doing Well the Work

As the boys grew older, they made do with old cars and farm equipment as they earlier had made do with old bicycles and outboard motors. This is the way they will survive - by being marginal, using what nobody else wants, doing well the work that nobody else will do. If they aren't destroyed by some scientific solution to all our problems, they will go on though dynasties past. - Wendell Berry, Jayber Crow

Pictures below highlight Luke and Jacob's work of the day. They are working on a long project - putting up a new fence line between the diversion ditch and alfalfa fields.
