We occupied Munich the third of May. The war ended on the eighth of May. And what began on the Normandy beach was done. The war machine shut down to cool its motor. I was with a small detachment occupying the town hall. Our mission was to govern the city. There were fewer than thirty of us. We had fantastic authority. As pasha of the transportation department, dispatcher, and proprietor I could dispense uncommon merchandise: wheels to almost anywhere. Known by many in his community as the Will Rogers of Major County, Oklahoma, McWilliam Davis entertained many with his humorous column, "Notes from a Farmer." His family treasures the reams of musings, letters, observations, and running commentaries that Mac, as he was known by all, churned out in his loopy, elegant penmanship on his favored legal-size yellow pads. His stories about routine activities in a small Oklahoma community were thoughtful, engaging, and insightful. Notes from a Farmer reveals the wit of this perceptive writer. Much of Mac's writing was done in the winter, a time in Oklahoma when farmers tend to maintenance, fencing, and other chores as they wait patiently for the young winter wheat to carpet the hard-worked fields. This collection includes his columns, a selection of letters, observations, and musings.
