Mondays with Marty

In this week's installment from Off the Record with Martin Luther, Luther laments the suffering that grain experiences at the hands of people:
851. Grain suffers a lot from people. For first of all, it is thrown onto the ground, so that it will germinate. Finally, when it is grown and ripe, it is cut up or torn out. After that it is threshed and sifted, then we grind it and brew beer or near beer from it, which farmers guzzle and then give it back above and below and tinkle on the fence.  (p. 99).

This quote is amazing!! It made me chuckle...

It reminds me of the one and only time that I tinkled on an electric fence as a little boy. Such an experience will forever be burned into my memory. Thanks to your Martin Luther quote, I just had a nostalgic moment.
