Never under estimate those old farmers. When I was a Security supervisor at Greenville Memorial in SC we got a call one night about a patient that needed restraining. I took a stout guy fresh out of the Marine Corps with me - I was no little guy either. When we got to the room there were 3 nurses cowering in the hallway. We went in and there was this little old black man (turns out he was 83) I took one arm the other guy grabbed the other and soon we were both in headlocks and could not get out. Working together we managed to get him pulled back to his bed, but could not get him in it. Finally a doctor about the size of a small house came in and the three of us managed to get the old guy in the bed and the nurses came in and got him restrained then they got us out of our headlocks. We hobbled out to the hall drenched in sweat, eyeballs bulged out, and sat in the floor to catch our breath. A middle aged woman walked up and said thank you for being so gentle with my father. I said, "Ma'am I have had an easier time getting guys three times his size restrained - what does your father do all day?" She replied, " Oh, not much, he is just an ox farmer."

Pretty amazing story. The part where he went to do the charity marathon and had to pull out because his only crew member became ill is a shame. He probably could have done it.

I have seen stories like that which highlight the indomitable human spirit. It's amazing what anyone is capable of if they put their mind to it! This is a good story for those who like to say "I can't". When my children say that they can't do something, I tell them it's because they think they can't.

To which my father always said "No matter if you think you can, or you can't...you're right"

Great story, it's amazing what some folks can do. Yesterday I was stacking bales in the hay loft. We kept at it, only to take a short break when we changed wagons. The dad of the guy that owned the place is in his late 60s to 70s I think. He was right up next to me and I was having trouble keeping up. :) We managed to finish off that day and he was still ready to stack more while I was tired.

Also my dad in his 60's was grinding down 100 pound wheel weights and then moving them, with only a little help from us boys. Many years ago, my grandpa near his 80's was chopping silage, milking cows and pushing plow and mule( that was for fun, got the mule from a neighbor). Great story, thanks for sharing NutCase.
