“This is the first time Jimmy, my now husband, went home to Indiana with me. It was November and he really wanted to ride in a combine. I told him it was too late in the season. As we pulled up to the old farm house I could see my cousin in the combine – he was on the very last run of what was a very late season. So Jimmy got to ride in the combine and the rest is history… (We got married the following June)!” – Jessie Vitulli
