The Farmer's Wife

Being the farmer's wife comes with certain privileges. Sure, you might not get to do all the fun stuff like driving the skid steer and loading the pigs, but you always get the front end on bull banding day. You have to be a true-blue farm girl to appreciate the benefit of that little detail.

Brenda said...

Yep ... the front end of banding is definitely the place to be! You crack me up. :D

I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving.

I'm a girl, and it still makes me want to cross my legs Teresa:))) (Not sure how to express what it meant to know that you were thinking about and praying for me all week~ if you were closer I'd just hug you and not even fight back the tears.)

I'm blessed Dicky Bird! I always love seeing your closing line!

Rob offered me the other end today, Brenda, but I graciously let him have the honor . . .

Only you could look that cute and still be smiling while wearing rubber boots, a winter hat, and banding bulls. :)

Unless, of course, it was my twin sister wearing the rubber boots, the winter hat and the smile~ then there could, technically, be two of us looking that cute while banding bulls:)) I'll call you next time, Traci~ you know how to do the back end, don't you??? My Rob will love ya even more!!

FYI on why we even have bull banding pictures~ Micah just happened to walk out in the middle of it and snapped the shots while we were, ummmm, busy.

Me too, I get the best end because I am married to such a good man. One i will never deserve but will always be greatful for. yet I castrate the baby pigs. Go figure. being anurse, i'm better with scapels and I drench them with betadine afterward. Like my mom always said"it all comes out in the wash"
