Morning on the Farm



Sun coming up red.

Cottontail rabbit lolloping down across the lawn, up to his ears in dewy green. Cows grazing on the hill side with wild turkeys strolling among them. Foggy around the edges, quiet, clear and calm. Just another day in our personal paradise.




Of course, as good as all that sounds, you have to add in a continuous string of breakdowns, every single day without fail and the dog barfing up the new dog food before he even got done with breakfast etc. etc.




It's a great life if you don't weaken.

Well. I don't imagine I'll read anything more profound in quite a while.

Cathy, it has always been a favorite saying of our wonderful horseshoer. I worked with him when I was a teenager in a veterinarian's clinic. There were many occasions for its use.
