Farm girls for a day! My Sister-in-law and me. The tractor that has seen years and years of service, owned by a 80 year old gentleman living on a farm we visited a few weeks ago. Oh, if tractors could talk what stories this weathered old tractor could tell. As you can see, the farmer built his own cab, probably to protect himself from the elements of the weather while working the fields. On this farm were four silos.

Thought you might enjoy seeing what the views look like from the top of the silos, looking in different directions. Did I take these pictures? Absolutely not! But, since my brother sent them to me, I thought I would share the view with you.






I came away with a fresh appreciation for the devouted farmers of our country.

The rolling farmlands look like calendar pictures. Thanks to your bro for going to great heights to get those shots! There are very few upright silos left in our part of the country...so we have to find other ladders to climb if we want aerial views.

Ah . ..farmer for a day .. .now we just have to get your hands a bit dirty.
I was wondering if the farmers in your area are all devout. .or devoted . .either would actually work.

Oh sometimes it makes me wish I wasn't a city girl.......BEAUTIFUL!

Just a little something from Judy said...

In answer to your question, yes, the farmers in our area of the country are quite devoted to their farms. In fact, we are known as the "Garden Spot of the World". Not sure that is true, although farming is taken quite seriously, for which we are very thankful.

It is always great to catch up with you...loved the farm tour and the Cowboys stadium tour...if we ever get back to Dallas...we have to do that. What an amazing place!

Glad you got to visit your daughter...those times are the best. My oldest turns 28 on Feb. 1st...how can that be??

That's it! That's the place where we could be cowgirls together, and rope cattle and all. You could do all the cooking and decorating, and I'd drive the tractor.
