Never forget!

Location, Kearney, NE

Never forget!

What do you do while stuck in a Kearney, NE cornfield on a Sunday?

After Mass this morning, Clyda made us pancakes and eggs. After we cleaned up the dishes we drove south to Miden and Pioneer Village. This was the work of one man who made his money from plastic wrap.

Pioneer Village comprises 28 buildings on 20 acres and 50,000 items from “every field of human endeavor” from 1830 until 1970. There are buildings full of buggies, cars, tractors, farm machinery, airplanes, and every kind of collectable you can imagine. Several hours of walking, climbing stairs, and reading displays were enough for us so we came back to Kearney and recuperated with a stop at Culvers for frozen custard. That always revives me!

and more tractors! Even the second floor had tractors.

Making rag rugs on a hand loom. My mother and dad did this for years.
