  • "Dream big and make it happen.", the tractor driver told me.

    "When I was 17, I was the incoming president of the Junior Farmers Association and thought it would be a good idea for me to go to the social. There was only one problem: I didn't have a date. My sister said that her friend Ruby might be available and she'd give her a call. So we went to the social together and I told her then and there that I didn't know how to dance. She said that there was no better time to learn than right now. We were married a few years later."
