On the previous post my friend, Anzu, commented she wanted to see the guy who went with the farm woman. So to give equal time to my dad here is a post about the farmer.
If you’re looking for a photo of a real farmer, check out this one:
When the home town newspaper needed a picture of a farmer out standing in his field, they asked my dad to show off his wheat crop.
Here’s a photo I took of Dad at work in our barn milking cows.
To be fair to Mom this is one of Dad geared up for work in the winter. Um, Dad, the calves are getting into the hay stack.
Dad had a real soft spot in his heart for animals. Bingo, the cow dog, loved Dad with jealous passion to the point of climbing on his lap when he paid too much attention to cats like the black one there on the sofa.
Most visits to Grandma and Grandpa’s farm included a ride on the tractor.
While he was still healthy, Dad took anyone who was willing to his favorite fishing spots.
So, although some artists have depicted farmers and their wives like this…
My favorite farmers look like this.
