My main problem with city people is that every summer, they think our place is a park or a petting zoo or something. The concept of having to get certain things done in certain seasons and not having the time to squire them around is something I have a real problem explaining without being rude. It's like they think some farmer's version of cobbler's elves are mowing ten acres of lawn and weeding flower and vegetable gardens, in addition to the fields and livestock.

I just wish they would get there is a time not to visit, and seeding time and harvest time would be two of those times. And need I add that they also expect supper?

But all in all, I don't like lists like the OP.

6. Just because this is a tourist area, dosen't give you the right to wander onto my property.
(People do actually come out her and yell at us. I ain't makin' any of this up.)



I love the sound of donkeys and chickens cackling, reminds me of OK. I miss it!

Several years ago some "city folks" came to our area (western Ky.) to deer hunt. They had leased the land and went out and bought new rifles they showed off to everybody. One man showed up at the deer check station all excited about his first deer. Fish and Wildlife people went to check out the deer on his trailer and immediately gave the man a ticket...for shooting a cow!

In my little town, they just built a new hotel, right next to a farm's cow pasture. I can just see the people who come and stay there. First seeing the cows will be considered "quaint". Until the wind shifts and they don't want to open their windows anymore...

I agree with Jesse. We have deer in our yard (their idea, not ours) and we get people who drive by and yell at us for "keeping deer"....

I have never noticed an odor from cattle grazing in a pasture.( regardless the direction of the wind )

Do you even know the difference between the words pasture and feedlot ?

new topic.

When you drive down a road you think might go somewhere and find a house at the end. See people working, don't just turn around and drive away!

It makes you look like a crook and we rural dwellers don't like crooks!. Drive up to where you see people and smile say your name and i was lost or something. Other wise you could find yer new red truck full of holes unless it can drive faster than my .308 can fly!

We don't care of you made an error, wanting to see what's on the other end of a back lane, but we want to know you didn't just rip us off, while we were WORKING out back where the work takes place.

We know you see us, and we see you too.

Ahhh, don't feel bad. Folks around here feel it is their right and that somehow it's okay to blast their freaking thumping junk car stereos full blast so everyone in the town knows they were stupid enough to waste thousands of dollars on useless, annoying junk. Nobody has a hardon except them. I'd rather hear a cow farting.

(since we are whining about stuff... sorry)
