I always wanted to live on a farm. But I dont think Ill like the bumpy roads, or the loud farm equipment at all times of the day and night. And who do they think they are, going so slow with their old stuff taking up all of the road. And all that dust, why do they have to plow up that field, it had green stuff on it when I bought my property. and dont mention the smells. Cant they do something with their cows so they dont go to the bathroom everywhere. I dont think much of having to deal with my own water supply and would you believe ityou have to maintain your own septic system. I cant believe that no one comes around to pick up the garbage. They cant really think that Im going to put trash in the trunk of my car and haul it away myself! Im afraid when the police dont make their rounds every few hours. What! Storms knock the electricity off for hours or even days at a time, couldnt be. I like the snow on the hillsides I see on the greeting cards at the drug stores, Im sure the roads are snow free though. It is so boring around here,,,,, you have to drive forever to find anything to do. They really need some good restraints around here too. But what do you expect from a bunch of hicks. They dont know what real life is,, like in the city. Theyre so uncultured. But Im sure I can change all that. I always wanted to live in the country.

Good grief.

Just who are you accusing of having ROADS? If my taxes go up cause of you, I'm gonna be P/O'd.
Loud farm equipment? Why my tractors won't run more than 10 minutes without a 2 week breakdown, what is your problem?
Yeah I can do something about my cows going to the bathroom everywhere, I could charge you for them fertilizing your garden, shoot I hope you don't consider that prize rose bush of yours as payment for 15 lbs of fresh cow manure. And speaking of going, thanks to you, I hadda get rid of the outhouse, and put in one of them indoor toilets,,, do you know how poorly them things work WITHOUT RUNNING WATER??? Thanks for nothing!
Speaking of thanks, We don't need any fancy restaurants, not as long as you keep planting that garden, you and my cows grow the best 'maters!
Why do you worry about the 'lectricity being knocked off, it's like worrying about one of my pigs breaking a wing! Ya can't lose what ya don't have.
Now then if you're done complaning, I'm wondering if I can borrow your BMW, the seed company is putting on a free feed down at the feed mill, and I'd like to take Ethel down there in style, for their cheese and bologna buffet!
Thanks for being such a great neighbor.

Funny how people are different. Growing up in the city, sirens, traffic, even gun shots during the night would not wake me up. But I knew danger was there.

Now, in the country, those John Deere tractors (twins cylinders are best) sweetly sing me to sleep. Being busy, I am never bored either. When I am frustrated, one walk around my property is like being 'born again'.

You sound like my 80 year old neighbor 1/2 mile down the road-a couple of years ago I decided to give my John Deere 70 Diesel a little excersize on the chisel plow-he stopped by the field and said, (in a strong French accent}:"I was standing in my toolshed and heard that POPOPOPOPPOP and I thought what the he11 is that?? Then I looked out and seen you in the field--I hadn't heard one of them things in years--it sounded pretty good!!" It made me feel good to have brought a smile to his face.

That is just precious! I'm gonna copy and paste that in an email to our PR department.

Right on, I bought a place a little bit out and would you know it, I came home a couple of weeks ago to find a HEIFER standing about 10 ft. from my house. Can you imagine that? I knew who it belonged to and went over and read them out, telling them I was calling the sherrif and if it happened again I was going to have free beef. Then it wandered down the road and stood there blocking it. I shouldn't have to put up with this. Good thing it didn't poop on my lawn, I want good clean fertilizer. I sure didn't move here to be threatened by ferocious animals running loose, I just want to live in the country a bit. By the way, the gunieas and chickens are doing well.

cuz it is too close to the truth here where I am. I am afraid in another 10 years I'll be the last few green acres in the middle of a parking lot. I'm usually an optimist, but this is the one topic that'll ruin my day completely.

What a nice list of all the things I like about the country. You forgot mad 2,000 lb Open Range Bulls bellowing at night and tearing down your fences, wild fires coming over the hill in the middle of the night. Forgeting to get gas on the way home and relizing you only have a 1/4 tank and that is not enought to get back to town with on a 30 gallon tank! Getting stuck on the road leaving for town after the last person to leave for work that day was you. So many neat things to look forward in the country, you all come back now!! Mark H.
