Headlice isn’t so bad.

 My students often tell me they eat ‘lice’.

You can see a stroller in the background.  I think the reason Korean grandmothers love becoming grandmothers is that they will soon get a handy cart to carry their stuff.

This was the end of a mere 2 hours of  rice harvesting.  I lifted and carted -in a bigger cart- perhaps two tons of rice.  My brother- and father -in-law don’t seem so tired.  I guess driving the combine isn’t so tough as carrying the rice.

Honestly, they did work hard, and longer than I.  Here, my father-in-law scythes the rice in a corner of the paddy. The combine can’t get into the corners so well, so they are done by hand.

 

 

My brother-in-law is driving the combine – a ‘Super Combine’ according to the side panel.  Each bag is filled to around 40-50kilos of white rice with the brown seed coat still on it.

 

Wikipedia has images and info on other combines which make this one look a little less ‘super’:

 

My brother-in-law had gone off to play volleyball, so my father-in-law brought in a tractor to carry the last 12 bags.  If you click to embiggen, you can see my son is getting a ride in the tractor’s scoop.
