Up at dawn to greet the day!
I'd rise sooner if I had my way.
Eat three eggs, and veggies too.
That's what we're all 'posed to do.
Weeding, before 7 a.m., comes first …
(the sun's low): milk to quench my thirst.
Oh! Did I forget to mention milking cow?
Then comes work with the big tractor and plow.
By noon I'm ready for lunch: chicken gizzards and beer.
I'll need my energy for when I have to brand our new steer.
Then a quick nap and I go into orchards, there to pick....
Asian pears, apples, and plums. I can sure do it quick.
I MUST: "Make hay while the sun shines". [Clover]
More milking must be done ‘fore my work's over.
Mrs. just had twins! I don't know just WHEN …..
I had time/energy to become a Dad, again, but I ….
guess I DID, …..sometime SINCE I hired the ‘new man';
he's a real FAST worker for us. His name is Glenn.
