    Yes, Mike, the Great Depression. Reminds me, as told to me by way of anecdote, when money was so devalued that people carted bank notes around in wheelbarrows. To buy a loaf of bread.

      I don’t remember many people talking about it. The only specific recollection I have is that my great-grandfather was able to purchase enough hay to make it through without losing the farm and, in fact, subsidized my great-uncle in buying a ranch in the Nebraska sandhills.

      Odd that I don’t recall hearing much about it since it ended only about a decade before I was born.
