Lincoln definitely put a lot in the years that he had.
The beginning line, when I read it in my head, set itself to music. The Beatles line played out: "In the end the love you take is equal to the love you make"That may have worked for the men from Liverpool, but not me. Mine cannot be just equal. I feel strongly that I have to give more love than I take. That I have to, as a gentleman, provide more, than is provided for me. I will hold you up high to reach the better fruit. I will place you first.That, then, is why I will have more life in my years.

Indeed. What a wonderful quote! I try to rise above the mundane existence of work and routine tasks. I do that now by traveling and learning more about the art and science of shooting. A plus is meeting new people with the same penchant. And of course being here.
JB - re your comment not for publishing. Thanks for the info on the threshers activities. I go to at least two a year, more if I can. Love the old equipment. Best to you and yours.
"I feel strongly that I have to give more love than I take. That I have to, as a gentleman, provide more, than is provided for me. I will hold you up high to reach the better fruit. I will place you first."That was beautiful, North. A true pillar of society.
Yeah. Reminds me of Yeats: A lonely impulse of delightDrove to this tumult in the clouds;I balanced all, brought all to mind,The years to come seemed waste of breath,A waste of breath the years behind
