Amanda, country folk value their freedom above all else. The freedom I speak of has to do with choices in everyday life. The choice to live and raise their families away from the damming influence of city life; freedom from drive-by shooting and car jacking; freedom from crowded neighborhood and unruly children; freedom from pollution and gastly smells of cities; freedom from grafitti and dirty streets. And, the list goes on and on.

The things I've mentioned are things country folk are free from. Now, here are some of the things we in the country are free to do. Like, listening to birds sing; watching baby rabbits hop across the lawn; seeing deer off in a distant meadow; growing vegetables free from pesticides and and other killing agents. experiencing the joy of watching flower blossoms unfold from seeds you planted. But, mostly, it's the serenity that comes from country living.

Now, please know that not all people living in the country see things as I've described them. But, that's owing to their own misfortune. For, they have not eyes to see the joy of nature....

Values...    Posted 07-18-2004 at 03:04:20       [Reply]  [No Email]
Paying $1/dozen for fresh eggs and 1st cut alfalfa/clover hay right now is about $1.25 a square bale, and $10 a small round...

Of course the values go up in the winter...

Sorry...Couldn't resist...

Oh i like the cheap eggs alright, but i can't get the missus to fix those round bales. Maybe we need a bigger frying pan. And a taller kitchen. :)

If you leave your car/truck parked on the roadside to go get gas,It will still have the wheels,radio and windows when you get back. Unless a cop and wrecker steals it.
