I like this description, "when it was good it was really really good -- and when it was bad it was really really bad"…because its true. Your long hours for farmers is exactly right (working seven days a week, if they have livestock). I totally agree that people "were a different generation" in the WWII era. Thanks for the challenge to show by example. You brought back a lot of memories for me with this "Remembrance".
This was a very nice step back into time. Thank you so much for sharing.
Simple and good, made me think of Carl Sandburg poetry. A little word mix up in line 18, which you may have caught by now.
When I first started reading this, I wasn't sure if I would like the writing style. However, it quickly grew on me, and then I was hooked.

Thank you for sharing this authentic step back into the past. I enjoyed it. :)
