I saw Wade Hemsworth, that song's writer, in the early '90's. He was getting pretty old but was able to hold the audience with his numerous songs.

The Abitibi River, mentioned in the tune, is near Cochrane, Ontario, hometown of Tim Horton- he of hockey and coffee shop fame. He died in a 1974 high speed crash with his Pantera doing 110mph.

That had to hurt. 

DeanT - Posted - 06/05/2016:  18:03:23


I was t-boned in a pick-up truck. We were hauling 50 bails of hey stacked in the bed. After the crash there were 2 bails left in the truck. Hey was everywhere. No one was hurt, but both vehicles were destroyed. To this day, I believe the hey absorbed the impact forces. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/05/2016:  18:59:13


Wow, that's a close one. Yeah, I guess the hay kind of cushioned the impact.

OM45GE - Posted - 06/06/2016:  03:23:02


It must have dissipated a lot of the energy. Think about how much effort it takes to toss a hay bale. 

DeanT - Posted - 06/06/2016:  05:05:45


I'm familiar with stacking hey! I did a lot of it as a teenager! hardest work I've ever done

dat - Posted - 06/06/2016:  06:52:07


and that last bale has to be carried the farthest and stacked the highest of any of the rest 

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/06/2016:  09:05:17


Stacking hay isn't fun, but man, there's a feeling of satisfaction when you're done.

DeanT - Posted - 06/06/2016:  10:05:51


I usually spent the night sneezing!

dat - Posted - 06/06/2016:  10:20:47


we used to get a quarter a bail, from the field to the barn, no matter if it was a mile or 10, it was pretty good money back then too, no tellin how much the hauling price is now

Back in 1971/ 72, I worked those two summers doing "grunt" work at a summer camp for kids.  The camp offered horseback riding and before the camp actually started for the year, there were two or three of us who went to a neighboring farm to get hay to bring back to the camp for the horses.  When we got to the field with the flatbed truck, they had the hay baled up and piled in groups of three - - but they had just cut it all so it was still green and VERY heavy.  We got a real workout that day even though I was young and in shape then.  I saw a video recently of a woman collecting hay with a pitchfork, and she outworks anyone I've ever seen.



 



Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/06/2016:  10:52:39


And she's barefoot with bare legs!

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/06/2016:  10:55:23


When I was in college, we had a barn on campus and one year we found evidence of illicit sexual activity in the hay barn.  I was talking with someone about that.  I was like seriously, you want to roll around in the hay?  She said when she was a kid her 4-H group used to have slumber parties in the hay loft at her barn, and she remembers it was quite comfortable sleeping in the hay.  And I said, "But were you wearing clothes?"



Eventually they caught the couple, in the act, who had been using the hay barn.  It was a couple of kids from the local high school.

dmiller - Posted - 06/06/2016:  11:12:00


Extra curricular activities.  shock wink

dat - Posted - 06/06/2016:  14:02:27


you mean you aren't s'posed to do that in tha barn?    blush

DeanT - Posted - 06/06/2016:  14:05:54


We had slumber parties in the heyloft. I hated it, I would sneeze my head off

dmiller - Posted - 06/06/2016:  14:56:50


dat - Posted - 06/06/2016:  15:02:51


as long as the kids are in the house, the barn has plenty of room

DeanT - Posted - 06/06/2016:  16:20:02


The only thing out behind our barn was a manure pile....

OM45GE - Posted - 06/07/2016:  03:31:40


Wow, the woman in the video sure can work. I bet she's done that a few times before. 

dat - Posted - 06/07/2016:  14:31:35


she works to hard for me,  I wouldn't want to have to try to keep up

DeanT - Posted - 06/07/2016:  17:35:06


I simply couldn't!

OM45GE - Posted - 06/08/2016:  05:06:30


I don't know how she does it barefooted. We had fields in hay growing up and the stubble after they were mown was brutal.

dat - Posted - 06/08/2016:  06:01:18


when I was a kid I walked barefoot everywhere, through the woods, down the gravel road, black top roads, through briars and thickets without even thinking about it. I'm pretty tenderfooted now, if I'm barefoot I walk very slow and watch where I put my feet

DeanT - Posted - 06/08/2016:  10:47:18


yep... we took our shoes off the last day of school... and didn't put them back on until school started again

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/08/2016:  11:12:10


We got a brush cut in June, and a new pair of runners in September

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/08/2016:  13:02:17


When I was a kid I used to step on things a lot--broken glass, rusty springs, etc.  Lots of ugly puncture wounds and a couple of nasty infections later, I pretty much always wore shoes starting when I was 7 or 8.

OM45GE - Posted - 06/08/2016:  15:19:08


I once stepped on a board and drove a finish nail headfirst into my heel so deep we had to use a claw hammer to pull it out.  

DeanT - Posted - 06/08/2016:  16:38:55


Hair cuts are a funny thing. I remember the brush cuts. My Dad called them crew cuts, and the Air Force called them Buzz cuts. When I retired I thought I was never going to get another hair cut again. Ha! I looked like a convict hippy druggie, and it was an ass pain to take care of. I gave up and got a buzz cut... and still go back for another one every month. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/08/2016:  18:09:20


Yah, short hair is easy to manage

OM45GE - Posted - 06/09/2016:  03:37:13


We called crew cuts "whiffles" when I was a kid. Sometimes we got flat tops. 



 



 

DeanT - Posted - 06/09/2016:  05:10:40


My Dad used to get flat tops. I've thought about it, but never have.

OM45GE - Posted - 06/09/2016:  06:22:27


My dad always had a crew cut and insisted that I did too. When I got old enough to make my own choices I grew it to the middle of my back. Like you said, too much of a PITA to take care of so I wear it short now. My dad would approve. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/09/2016:  07:05:08


It's funny how our dads get smarter as we get older

my brother grew a beard and let his hair grow long when he retired, then he cut his hair short again and trimmed his beard but said he wasn't ever going to shave again since he got out of the AF



 



I bought some clippers and cut my own hair, or my bride cuts it , buzz around the edges and then leave just enough on top to lay down when it's wet

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/09/2016:  07:21:05


I rarely shave,,,just use the sideburn trimmer on my old Philishave to keep my beard at a 5 day growth

dmiller - Posted - 06/09/2016:  07:44:03


When we were kids and summertime rolled around - - Dad set us up on a tall stool out in the side yard of the house and got out his hair clippers.  He'd start on one side an and keep on going right over the top of our heads.  5 minutes later we had no hair and since he cut it outside - - there was minimal cleanup for him!  When we got to be teenagers he stopped that practice and gave us "real haircuts".



I used to date a gal who said the perfect razor would leave a 1/2 inch stubble.  

DeanT - Posted - 06/09/2016:  10:40:14


I can't even grow a mustache without getting pissed about messing with it all the time. I've never done a beard. I've been clean shaven my whole life. 

dat - Posted - 06/09/2016:  10:58:25


I grew a beard once, I looked kinda like Grizzly Adams, of course it would be a little lighter in color now.  even using conditioner, it was always like an sos pad or steel wool, I may go a weekend or so without shaving every once in a while, but I just keep a mustache

OM45GE - Posted - 06/09/2016:  12:21:04


I wore a full beard for over 20 years. When my son (now 15) was about six he told me he wanted me to "shave my beard and be a real dad". I asked him what he meant and he just kept saying he wanted me to shave. I waited a week and  asked him if he liked my beard and he told me he had already said he wanted me to shave it off. I showered and shaved everything off and went to where he was playing and asked if he liked it. He held out his arms and said, "I love it, give me a kiss!". He rubbed his face against mine for a long while. I've been clean shaven ever since.

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/09/2016:  12:52:38


Aww........kids say the darnedest things. Really though, I wonder where he got the notion that a Dad had to be clean shaven.?

dat - Posted - 06/09/2016:  12:55:09


no tellin with kids where they come up with stuff,



somebody somewhere said something and he took it personal, then in his mind that's the way folks are s'posed to be.   

OM45GE - Posted - 06/09/2016:  14:10:05


The funny thing is, my two best friends and both my brothers had full beards as well. He still gets a little pissed if I say I'm going to grow a beard again (not that I really plan to).

DeanT - Posted - 06/09/2016:  15:06:31


gonna be interesting if he stays clean shaven too

OM45GE - Posted - 06/10/2016:  02:47:14


He just did his first shave this week. It was pretty emotional teaching him how to shave. 

dat - Posted - 06/10/2016:  05:52:32


kinda fun to start with, just for something new and growing up, but shaving gets old pretty quick

DeanT - Posted - 06/10/2016:  06:21:13


especially when you cut yourself

OM45GE - Posted - 06/10/2016:  07:08:16


I definitely liked having a beard and not having to shave every day but I prefer how I look clean shaven.

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/10/2016:  08:06:22


I keep my neck shaved ,,don't like the stubble ,or the scruffy look

dmiller - Posted - 06/10/2016:  08:18:21


Same here, Chuck.  I keep mine trimmed cause I'm not fond of the Jerry Garcia/ David Grisman look.
