I am sure that most of you must think that all I ever see are fields of corn, tobacco, and tall grass. Barns, dogs, and kids often fill my posts. But, this picture is the real deal. I pass through this caution light leaving my farm to drive into Smalltownland civilization.
The intersection, and the surrounding buildings, have been here since I was a kid spending time during summer break hanging out with my grandparents. And, to hear my Grandma Bird tell it, this intersection was here when she was a child and her dad owned the blacksmith shop not too far away.
Farmers pass under the flashing light many times a day. The morning school bus can really clog up traffic here as well. If you call a line of five cars traffic.....
It isn't fancy and it certainly isn't modern, but it provides a sense of comfort in this Farmchick's small town routine.
