I think the farmer's wife worked harder than the farmer as they got to sit on a tractor/combine seat most of the day while the wife had to juggle everything pertaining to the home and family. I don't think my mom sat down until a meal and then only briefly. She also did the chores as: milking cows, taking care of the milk and cream, gathering and cleaning the eggs, connected the windmill so that it would work to fill the resorvoier (sp), making everything from scratch almost every day, the washing and ironing, mending, tending to the babies, kids, and still had time to go to town and get groceries. And probably many others that I left out.
That's because most were working the man's jobs in the work place, all the men were at war.
Fabulous ad! Fabulous lunch, too. Thank you.
