"One year we had the most beautiful corn. I think that was in the '30s. It just looked like it could really make a lot of corn. Well, it looked beautiful one day, and then two days later, it wasn't nothing. I know [the] guy that hauled fuel out to our place said, 'That's the best looking corn I've ever seen.' And in a week's time, we didn't have any corn. So, that's how quick it'd dry up."
