Default pics of the summer

i haven't been around for awhile. the pictures down below should offer some explanation... it is starting to get cold again, and i have to crawl into my hole (which is actually my couch) and start heading to the gym again so i can rock it out next summer once again. summer is always short no matter where you are.

Absolutely unreal! I could actually feel my blood pressure drop. A long forgotten tranquility came over me while looking at your pics. I have been living in a city too long.


Thanks to all who posted here, I will be using this thread as a de-stressor from now on!

I know townies like to think of farmers as dumb clodhoppers... but those farmers have a LOT of time to cogitate while they're driving that tractor or hauling that hay to the cows in the back 40. Those wonderful puns, and the stories told by just some hay and a few props, are definitely not the product of dull minds!!

I know I do most of my writing while I'm shovelling out the kennel... the brain has nothing better to do, so it thinks up stuff it would never create without that idle time when the body is busy but the brain is not.

There's been some research lately on How Kids Learn that found what our older generation already knew: Kids get their book learnin' in school, but they learn how to apply it to the world during that idle time when they're just "being a kid" -- chasing frogs, digging up anthills, building a fort out of sticks, making mudpies, chewing grass stems, watching the clouds drift past. That's when the brain does its *processing* of the facts it stashed away during the book learnin' session. The moral is, let kids be kids (as kids need to be for at least part of every day) and they'll grow up to be smart adults who can figure stuff out. Schedule every minute of their day and they'll never learn to really think.

Farmers, by the very nature of their work, get a LOT of that "idle time" for their brains to process whatever they learned the day before ... and out comes stuff like the Great Hay Punfest!

W/Montana you never know LOL.. it actually got worse than those pics. Those were taken Saturday afternoon. We have more pics taken Sunday morning after snowing almost 48 hours straight.

We had snow drifts 3 feet high in front of the garage (couldn't get cars out and didn't feel like shoveling LOL) so we stayed home and vegged out.

Around the front of the house and front door it was even higher and w/o the wind from saturday blowing our lawn was about 2" deep. A poor 4x4 was trying to take the corner by our house but the snow was so thick he got stuck and took him about 5 minutes to get his truck going again.

today SOME of the snow melted because it finally stopped and the sun is out (but so is that wind...wwwooooo) but we are still packed tight.. at least the car is out and hubby can get to work.
