#32 was the cotton gin! Great memory recall from Peyton, Milt, Elaine, Joani, Mike, and Michelle (extra credit for responding from recent surgery).
The Haul of Fame was one fun shoot. I was planning on a return trip this year after a light snowfall but that never happened - not the snow but my scheduling it!

Greatest Inventions of All Time!
Recently I came across an article about the greatest inventions as determined by a large group of scientists, philosophers, educators, and other professions. Their task was to create a list of "the Greatest Inventions of All Time." Conveniently, the final list numbered fifty! so, I'm starting with #50 and working my way down to Numero Uno in December.
Fear not as I will offer you some hints as to what the invention was.
This Greek scientist is believed to have designed one of the first water pumps, a device that pushed water up a tube. It transformed irrigation and remains in use today at many sewage-treatment plants.
