He went to swing parties and swap meets. He used to talk about his adventures all the time while we were doing the farm work. All the graphic details, if you know what I mean. I told him I did not want to hear any of this, and he kept trying to recruit me, so I finally got mad and quit. He only paid me $5.00 an hour under the table, anyway. This guy was old, too, in his 60's.

I'm telling the truth. It was a part time job I was doing for some extra cash on the weekends, because I like gardening and being outside. I met him at the farmer's market and we got to talking about my gardening, and he offered me a job on the farm, picking, and then spring planting, etc. It was fun at first, until he got to be really inappropriate. I guess he sized me up from the beginning, or he wouldn't have offered me the job. He was a notorious womanizer. Small towns carry a lot of dark, dark secrets.

No, I meant letch as in short for lecherous (sp?). A dirty old man. A salt of the earth type who turned out to be a real pervert. Anyway, it turns out that in this particular small rural town there is a real underground "swing" culture.

I can name about 8, but one was my Uncle. This was back in the 1970's when things were pretty open minded and the farm industry was strong. These 8 couples all got together, tossed their keys into a bowl and then blindfolded, pulled them out. Whose ever keys you ended up with, was who you went home with.

Now imagine being 10 years old and telling your teacher that your Uncle swapped wife's. He did. He was married to Carol. Dorothy was married to Skip. Today, he is married to Dorthy and Skip is married to Carol...a true wife swap!

In fact, in that group of 8 couples, they all got divorced and remarried within the group. Only one person did not get married. She was trying to take the horny farmer for all he was worth. One day she got her hair sucked up into a grain silo unloader and was killed. A week later my Uncle was working at the farm and out of nowhere a guy shows up and asks if he wants his wife and divorce to "just go away". He said she was the mother of his kids and even though he was mad...well there is only so far you can take things.

In my 35 years of farm life, I have never heard of an accident like this. It was no accident, but as someone said, lots and lots of deep dark secrets in small towns. I could write a book on some of the secrets I know.

All this is true by the way. You hear the stories and the truth on the farm...so many people coming and going!

I believe you, BrokenTap. I heard more stories than I wanted to from The Letch. I was also stared and leered at and he tried to find reasons to touch me, like brushing off the back of my pants. When we were filling the transplanter water tanks, he stripped to his jockeys right in front of me, and wanted me to take my pants off, too. I got really mad, and he apologized, but he behaved himself for only one day, and then started up again. I needed money, but not that badly. They should have never invented Viagra.
