All by myself.
It was nice.
I figured out a few things:
If you don't know what it means to 'mark a field',
If you don't know how manure can smell so sweet,
If you don't know what it is like to look forward to a dirt road,
If you don't know what it's like to look in your rearview mirror and see your trail of dust,
If you've never watched a calf being born,
If you're kids don't know how to drive a tractor,
If you don't know what gated pipe is,
If you don't wave at every car that you pass,
If your kids don't get dirty everyday playing outside,
And you don't know how to go to the grocery store once a month,
Then you probably live in the city... and I feel sorry for you.
Truly, I think raising a kid in the country is the best place.
I still love you city folk though!
