As you read yesterday, I do find joy in the small things that are a daily part of farm life. But there are days where those small things are wrapped up in a completely different package. It is these things I think should be labeled in large red letters stating: WARNING! DISASTER AREA. Early Saturday …
Although there are always ‘big’ chores to do on the farm, such as moving and working cows, fixing fence, cutting hay and disking and planting a garden, I find that it’s the little things that are the very life blood of any day. It is these tiny things that usually are taken for granted or …
After a meeting today, several of us were sitting around discussing our future. Although I won’t go into the politics that were involved, one portion of the conversation made me question where the Country Boy and I stand on a survival scale.   Hand-in-hand with that, I recently read a list of the 100 Items to …
I know the last thing you want to think about right now is Christmas. I mean, after all, with the unusually cold and snowy weather we’ve had, all you really want to think about it warm weather, shorts and flip flops. But there really is a method to my madness, and I’m trying to help …
     “Mama said there’d be days like this,” but for Pete sake, she never warned me those days might just roll into months! 2015 has been a rough year for us, and the scary part is that it’s only two and a half months old. If it keeps up, I am scared to find out …

I do believe my friend Gary has at least some Southern blood coursing through his veins – as evidenced by his great ability at storytelling.  He has a wonderful way of stretching it out, and then bringing it to a wonderful conclusion.  At least, I think this is the end of his story.  Let us …
I’m laughing right now.  Leave it to Gary to spread his column out – which makes me even more eager to read what he has to say.  He has a great way with words, and I always love reading his work.  However – if he can steal from us, I get to do the same …
What I Like About Living in the North, Part II I was writing about how much I loved reading about living in the South. As for Ms. Kat, I love her ability to appeal to the reader’s sense of smell: “I love the odd flowering trumpet vine that’s grown into the Holly in the front …
Gary tried to throw us a curveball by posting his thoughts on living in the North in 3 parts.  But that’s okay.  This Farm Wife is up for a fun challenge, and Kathleen is an English Professor as LSUS, so I know she’s dealt with his kind before!  So – here is Part 1 of …
