Take a Sunday Ride in the Tractor Cab With Roger Miller | Learn About Auto Steer and GPS | Lucille Maris Shares a WWII Story About the Clausings
Vickie has the recorder on as she climbs into the cab of a John Deere to interview Roger Miller as he works ground to prepare it for planting in north central Indiana.
You’ll feel like you’re in the tractor cab too as you hear the engine running and the variety of beeps and signals emitted from the auto steer in the John Deere.
This interview was a way for Vickie to de-stress after a difficult week at work. Some of her favorite days of her career were from the time she spent in agriculture interviewing farmers about techniques for saving soil and protecting water quality.
You can see a short video of the John Deere tractor cab and its auto steer system when you visit the Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/vickiemaris

Lucille Maris Shares a WWII Story About the Clausings
Vickie has been interviewing her Mom, Lucille Maris, who is 91 ½ years, for the book she is working on about her parents’ life during WWII, which stems from the memoirs her dad, Lt. Col., James R. Maris drafted about his 30 missions as a bomber pilot. There will be more about the book in later episodes. For now, please enjoy this story that Lucille tells about news they received while living in Murfreesboro, Tennessee after Jim had returned from the war.
