Thanks for the warm welcome...and i like the way you type...yes i was born on a farm...but being the "princess" that they made me out to be, i was forever being shielded from everyday farm life...i'm 51yrs old and have yet to see anything born...they always ran me to the house when some animal was giving birth...i did however gather eggs, till i saw a snake and daddy said no more little girls in the chicken house... my fondest memory of living in the country is having my mother give me a mason jar with ice and well water and being told to take this to papa in the field..(gee, didn't they have coolers back then?)...i can still close my eyes and smell fresh turned dark earth...walking first down the furrow and then walking on the warm soft dirt that was piled up...packing my water...i did fall from a hay loft once...(i still say my bratty little brother pushed me...) we never got to swim in the pond...mother said it was too dirty...most of the time i would grab a book and head to the first row of trees behind the house...craw up and read till dusk sent me home...sheltered? yes somewhat...but its still good memories....and it gave me the roots to live as i do today...

You are not completely "citified" if you can still remember what fresh turned dirt smells like. That and watching a new baby come into this are (in my opinion)two of the most awesome experiences in this world. I don't post much but I have been around this site since it first started up. Welcome home.
