The Burning Platform
The plan for the day was to drive out around the lake to the mill and load up wood shavings. This meant installing the sideboards on the dump trailer and I was up in the back with the screw gun and a handful of GRK’s when the Jehovah’s Witnesses drove up. They stop by the farm a few times a year to see how we’re doing and give me the latest copy of their tract AWAKE! and we have developed an easy going friendship over the years. They know our children by name, always comment on the view or the fact that I’m always working on something when they visit and then we talk about whatever else is going on.
