With your large readership and limited time, I thought it would be fun if you considered a spot on your blog that might take on a life of its own.
Robert Fulgum wrote a book called All I really need to know I learned in kindergarten. If you were to start an interactive spot on your blog entitled “every thing I learned I learned while farming” I think we would all conjure up some good mental photos. The two rules I would impose would be a limit to one sentence and it has to start with Always or Never.
Always leave your truck end gate down after unhooking the 5th wheel trailer.
Never use a cattle prod after your pour alcohol based Ivomec on your cows.
Never leave your wrench on the implements tool bar.
Always have a kill switch close to the sweep auger.
Sounds like a plan to me. Add your Rules in the comments. I will start a separate post for all.
I would begin with some of my own:
- Never use the word "sturdy" when describing a woman.
- Never assume you'll remember a brilliant idea later when you will write it down.
