- CHANGES IN FARM EQUIPMENT
- Bought new farm equipment with war-bonds. Notes that farm equipment after WWII (combines, & balers) allowed farmers to work more efficiently, allowing Don to take his first vacation in 1948. Father did not take vacations either. Interesting transition. The subject of vacations comes up in the context of modern machinery. Helped created more time for vacation.
