Working Together

"Art and I, we always worked together; especially after the children got older, and I didn’t have to be in the house so much. We really became a team, and where Arthur was, Irene was. Everyone kind of made fun of us, but we enjoyed it. It was our life. We loved it. Working together. He would take a tractor, and I would take a tractor, whatever we were doing, I was right with him."

What a vintage photo! Arthur and Irene Beem were rock solid in my opinion. You know I had a chance to meet him (your great-grandfather) before I ever met your Mom. Could that really have happened?! Yes, it did. I'll always remember it.
