Reuben went by Spencer as long as I knew him. He was a farmer near Iroquois, South Dakota. I remember him letting me ride with him on his tractor when I was young. I also remember shooting bottle rockets off of his front porch. He had a small sitting room off of the living room where I slept, which was full of old issues of the Wall Street Journal. (Funny that a farmer would read the Wall Street Journal, but he certainly did.) I once found the floor of one of the rooms upstairs covered by a layer of dead bees. He said these were the drones. There must have been a huge beehive in his attic or between the walls. He told me that he drilled a hole in his ceiling to get honey, but I don't think that's true.
