A fine sight of bygone times.firstly the farmer went in with the Scythe to do the Roading as they called it then the binder to cut the harvest into Stooks then the Stooking of the sheaves to dry hard work.then the Leading with pitch forks.tractor & trailor & then stacking & then Threshing to Summerlid.s Mill.Ah! yes I remember it well don't know of any flat field's at Mt.Plesant?.

Sommerled McDonald had a threshing mill and so did Roddy & Jack Miller...of Mount Pleasant Farm! We had our own mill, but got Sommerled or the Millers for big days threshing.

Thanks for reminding me of The Millers Mill.these were the days great excitement when the threshing mill came to town it brought a great sense of Christianity with it everyone mucked in farmer helped farmer.the good wives baked.half yolkin'time was always good to look forward too it's a pity there's not enough Christianity about today like them times.
