We could be those folks on Green Acres! There are sure ways to tell that we’re city folks and don’t have a clue what we’re doing out here in these woods! I’m just happy no one else can see us.
Real cattle folks don’t wash out the water tanks for their cows. This is the second or third time we’ve done it . . pressure washer and all! Last time I talked about washing the tank, everyone who has cows laughed at me. Seriously, though, who would want to drink that dirty water and besides, there was a dead squirrel in it!
Real country folks don’t wear those hideous blue shorts! Have you ever noticed how real cowboys look in jeans? OK . . let’s not discuss that here! We’ll save that discussion for a girls’ night out! 🙂
Real country folks don’t wear crocs and they surely don’t wear them with black socks!
Real cowgirls watch where they’re walking and don’t walk through the pile of ashes and get their boots all dusty and ugly. It’s ok to walk through cow patties but don’t walk through a pile of wood ash!
Real country wives would be out helping with the chores instead of standing on the other side of the fence taking pictures!
Real or fake . . there’s no place I’d rather be than out in the country!

Vince is a good sport to go along with all of your teasing. At least I hope he’s a good sport . . . .

My husband cleans out his water tanks. He says that water gets pretty yucky!

I just want to know when girls night out is so that we can drink our strawberry margaritas and discuss those cowboys in their jeans ! 😉
But the really cool thing about living in the country is that you can dress any way you want and no one sees you, unless your wife is taking pictures and posting them on her blog. 😉
We’re in the process of moving to the country. I’m sure the locals have already had a good chuckle at some of our antics on our property. I mean, who in their right mind mows the pasture with a lawn tractor???
Oh, Judy, you are so funny! Thanks for the laugh!
Ok, maybe you are city folk, but I LOVE your stories!!! And your boots, and your new kitchen!! Thanks so much.

I fit in the same category. When we had horses, I had rubber mats in their stalls (with wood shavings on top), ceiling fans over their stalls, cleaned them out every morning when I let them out in the field to graze all day and I cleaned their stalls out with bleach every Saturday. Granted, they were show horses but still……they had a wonderful life. Real country folk would walk away shaking their heads. They couldn’t believe it but then, I’m a nurse by training. So, some of that has to bleed over, right? Pardon the pun.

LOL That’s OK – we love you just the way you are! Heck, around here we swim in the storage and dirt tanks, They never get cleaned out.

This is to funny Judy. Here in Conroe where I live our Subdivision was named Green Acres in the 50’s. We moved here when the TV series came on air. Everybody use to kid me about living in Green Acres. Still do and have now 50+ years and it is in town now. Still home to me.
So I was a county girl now a “city girl”. Still wear my Crocs outside and feed someone else chickens love every minute of it. but will soon be moving to new house..
