"Farming it helped. Like if you got out early in the morning, you had a yard light. You'd go to the barn and turn a switch and you'd have light. And you had light all over. Where otherwise, you just always had that little lamp where you'd carry it along. Later we got an electric cream separator so you didn't have to turn it by hand. You know, if you had a lot of milk that was quite a job, too. Like electric saw and stuff like that. Yeah. Now, I got a welder."
