Hay season would be a good “dirty job” for Rowe. Tossing bales of hay on a wagon for an afternoon of work will make a person feel like a gang member caught in rival territory...kinda beat up and raw.
Sent my high school football player son to western Kansas one summer to work on a friend’s farm during harvest. Ignored his complaints the first couple of weeks and he decided on his own to spend the entire summer there. When he returned home, he had grown a bunch, put on a ton of muscle, was more responsible and seemed to appreciate what he had a whole lot more. Now that he’s a lot older he says when he looks back he learned more about living that summer than any other time in his life and it was the best summer he ever remembers having.
Spending all day tossing hay up into the top of the barn with a pitchfork is not for sissies.
