    I must admit that I had some problems understanding his speech, but enjoyable listening second and third listening.

    Um...

    I went on the same field trip (circa 1965). Most of the kids enjoyed it...I had a cotton field right behind the house, so I didn't need any introduction to the plant itself. The Cotton Gin and getting to sit up in the cab of the Cotton Pickers...that was great! I remember them telling us how the cotton was picked before machinery...and we got downsized traditional cotton sacks to put our cotton in (no plastic sacks then).

    Yah, we were white kids. However, nothing was said about racial issues. Sharecroppers around here were both black and white. When the cotton crop came in, everybody was out in the fields, regardless of color.

    Great video. I LOL'd. I'm sure the school never had another trip like that one!

    Makes ALL the difference.;)

    We visited a cotton field when on a trip to Texas when I was a kid and I had a souvenir cotton boll for years. My mom must have chucked it out eventually.

    Mom told me that when we moved to Alabama in '65, her friends asked her how she was going to deal with plantation life. :rolleyes: They all got souvenir cotton bolls. Many years later, one of her friends came to see her and said that she still had that cotton boll and all of her kids had taken it to school for show 'n' tell. She was going to pick up a new one for the grandkids.

    My farm labor field trip was around 1965, and the class got to pick peas. We put them all in a big pot and while the farmer cooked them, everyone talked about how good they were going to be. I knew the raw ones I had eaten were sweet and delicious, so I imagined the cooked ones would be fabulous. Each kid got a little cup of peas and some salt and fresh butter, and that's when I found out that even the freshest green peas go from delicious to horrible when you cook them.

    I still like most vegetables when they're raw, and very few of them when they're cooked.

    Oh man, broccoli is up there with the worst! Raw in a salad of some sort, or just with a little dip is fine.

    I love peas. And broccoli. Raw and cooked (but not overcooked).

    Have you ever tried raw broccoli? 100 times better than cooked.

    It has to be cooked only to the point where it’s still bright green and firm to the bite.
