<quoted text> I am actually beginning to think he is so insecure that any woman who confronts him is seen as an attacker, an enemy. Especially women who won't back down and get on their knees to praise him. He and Skom both seem to have this problem. But more than that, they have a problem with anyone at all giving an opinion that differs from theirs. When that happens, both of them go into full abuse mode. Then they whine and cry that they are disliked by 'both sides'.
I ran across this quote...Thought you might like it.

“I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me.”

My most horrifying day on the farm...
Was the day we killed almost 200 chickens to put in the freezer...they do not smell good when dunked in that vat of boiling water...YIKES!
It was the day I learned...chickens really do run around with their heads chopped off!
No...that does not mean that I am an expert...nor know more than "G" does about those out of control chickens!
Now I do know about having more feathers stuck to me than the actual chicken did! LOL It is a nasty job.
Never had to shovel no sh't though.:-)
You can say all of the above again!

Even worse are turkeys. My aunt and uncle raised turkeys and that's a whole different side of bird-raising. It was my job as a child to pull out the big feathers. Later, I had to pull out pin feathers. I don't know which is worse. The worst job as a child though was working the tobacco fields suckering the plants. Back breaking work even for the very young. We had to pick it every week or 10 days when my uncle said the leaves were 'prime'. Then we'd have to split the stems and lay them on boards in the drying shed for about a week. then we had to tie leaves together in small bundles and hang them to smoke. I can't remember what kind of wood my uncle used, but I do remember that the smell was really nice. I used to love to see the bundles of tobacco hanging to smoke cure. I never helped after that point, so can't say what happened to it after it was cured. I think that's because he didn't want us kids around the cutter, but it could have been for other reasons. My dad smoked a pipe and he would get his tobacco from his brother. No one in the family ever died as a result of smoking, so I think maybe the chemicals they started using in commercial cigarettes has a lot to do with the cancer rate from smoking. I can't say for sure, though.

And I was always glad to go back to school and be away from all of that! The one promise I made to myself as a child and kept was that if possible, I would never sucker tobacco when I got grown. Thank goodness life has afforded me the blessing of being able to keep that promise!

I think maybe he has spent too much time rolling on the floor laughing his ass off at the expense of others. I think it might have caused some damage!
Another one of those "life lessons"...

Hehe, I'd still take driving the John Deere Model A pulling the manure spreader any day. I'll never forget the putt putt sound that thing made.

...and I have not plucked another chicken!

It is all great memories to have though. There was something so simple about those times. I hope that our children will be able to look back and find those memories that they hold dear. Especially those memories that taught them how to live life.

Most of all...I hope that there is someone that they look back on and remember the lessons that were taught to them...not out of a book but out of another person's life and the wisdom that the person had to share.

There were lessons in that tobacco suckering WN...I am sure that you found them and put them to use.

My youngest son's wife still likes to drive the old putt-putt tractor. Some of her happiest days are spent on that thing.

Well, it was a lesson in perseverance and keeping on till the job was done. We all had X amount of rows to do. I was usually one of the first ones finished. I keep telling my grandchildren if they just go ahead and do the stuff they dislike and get it over with, then they have free time to do stuff they like. Sometimes they hear that, sometimes not.
