    Has been many, many years since I saw a cotton gin......thanks for the memories. It was a lot different when we were picking cotton and taking to the gin. They used to give you a gold rimmed plate for using their gin.

    Oh my goodness, that makes my back hurt!! We grew cotton until 1959, and since there were 7 children, we worked our own fields...glad I ha the experience but don't want to do it again! LOL
