Father’s day for farmers

We won't have a big celebration for Father's Day. There isn't time for that in a farmers schedule. The girls have requested to help with a dinner they planned of salad, fried chicken, onion rings and fried pies. They will make Lynn a card, and I got him some new work pants. Beyond that, it...

No kids at the grocery store

I went to the store today withOUT the ratbabies.  It was quiet. It was peaceful. I could read my grocery-list in its entirety and not have to peel a small person off a merchandising display. It was lovely. Except Nobody told me ANY jokes. Nobody fought over who got to hold my hand. There was... Continue Reading →
