Burley Tobacco

Good Morning,
It rained after I mowed yesterday and it rained last night. It is 72 degrees outside this morning and at the moment it is still dark out there. I feel good mentally and physically. 
Some folks are showing us tobacco barns on Facebook that still look fine. I remember coming to Kentucky in about 1962. I do not smoke nor most folks I know smoke anymore but back in the early 1960's when I arrived here in Lexington area it was burly and the cats. Which I knew nothing about.   In 1962 everyone in Kentucky had a tobacco patch and around Lexington it was nothing but first class burly of the highest quality. Schools would let out to work tobacco. No chemicals hand picked weed free and bug free leaves. Every family would have an allotment of land to work tobacco.
