I'll bet this man has picked a LOT of strawberries over the years. Good on him - keeps him young probably.

Maybe I am profiling, but he doesn’t look like an illegal alien . . .

Sounds like quite a guy...a guy who Osama Obama & Pals certainly wouldn't have much use for.Productive...proud...not looking for any handouts;I fear that he's a dying breed in this country.

"Listen, maybe he's about 40 percent of what he used to be; that doesn't matter. Elmer is still at least 20 percent better than anybody else around," said farm owner Tom Shirey. Shirey explained a normal person will pick around one eight-box flat of berries in a morning. On Saturday, Weigle already had picked eight flats by early afternoon. "Now he's picked more than that, but I don't know if anyone else has picked eight flats in one day this year," Shirey said.

I used to be a real math whiz in high school, but these damn word problems have always given me fits... :-)

Just like my dad. He grew up picking berries for 2 cents a quart. He and his brothers would then buy fireworks for the 4th of July.

My father said the saddest day was July 5th, when you saw all of your hard work laying on ground in the form of exploded firecrackers.

He picked until he was about 94 and his eyesight got bad. Then me and the kids had to pick the berries for him. ;-)
