This past weekend we went to the National Threshers Association 65th Annual Reunion in Wauseon, Ohio. This year they featured Russell Steam Engines and John Deere equipment. My Uncle was really big into these engines and he took great delight in attending this event. We often made this a family reunion of our own by meeting at the fair grounds and and spending the day looking at all of these old steam engines, listening to the noon whistle and smelling the coal burning in the fire box. Even though Uncle has been gone for a number of years, we still go back and never fail to remember him and the many great memories we had because of his interest in steam engines. These memories will be with me forever.
