My Farmer Life …[ Hard Work & Hardly Any Time For Lovin'; Work On A Family Farm; Short; Humor/ Humour; Dedicated To My Mrs.! ]

Rating: 5.0


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.

Well done. I like it. The farmer’s life isn't easy. And needs sufficient eating. Eggs and veggies are not enough as I see. I thought an egg a day and fresh air keeps the hunger away. Ha-ha-ha!

Val, if i had my way, we would all 'return' to the fabled Garden of Eden, where (hopefully) God, or? would supply us with all of our needs, ........including a naked Eve for each guy. just think: no work needed except to feast on the Lord's Bounty! ! ! but.............that Snake! ! ! ! Yikes! ! ! ! Thanks for the nice comment. bri :)

Your life as a farmer sounds so fruitful.....! While picking apples and plums.... did half of them go into your stomach.... I wonder! 'An apple a day will keep the doctor away'.... but too many of them will land you amid doctors...! Hope you still remember what happened once when you ate too many of them from the apple tree in your orchard!
