Mother said that shortly after her and Daddy got married he asked her to help him plant watermelons. Her job would be to hold the pole with a rope attached to it so that Daddy could tell if he was planting a straight line. Seemed like a relatively easy task and Mom was happy to get to help. Daddy hops on the tractor and takes off with the other end of the line. After a little while Daddy looks back and Mother had moved. Mother said that she started looking around for arrowheads while waiting and before she knew it she was kind of wandering about the field. Needless to say, Daddy was not happy and did not ask for her help in planting watermelons again!
