Threshing: separating the grain from the chaff.
It's harvesting time in North Dakota and Drake has celebrated "Threshing Days" for 41 years.
They have a parade and lots of old fashioned activities.
The parade consists of neat old tractors and threshing machines.
In front of me at the parade where these adorable little boys. I couldn't help snapping a few pictures of them.
"Listening to National Anthem"
You could watch a blacksmith forging iron
Listen to a band play country music
Watch the threshing machine work

I visited with some of the old timers and listened to great stories. I heard how they used to ride to school in a horse drawn wagon with a little stove inside. It was quite a ride when the driver would send the horses into a gallop. The little wagon would tip from one side to the other.
