Farm Wife ~~ Hand Signals

Image taken from the Sept/Oct, 1995 issue of Country Woman magazine


Hand signals can be confusing for a farm wife; sometimes I feel like I'm supposed to read Popa's mind. It's the worst whenever I'm the one in the tractor; what do all the circling motions mean? Turn the steering wheel right or left? Move forward or stop? The wave, back and forth, are we finished? The one signal I do know is the disgruntled frown; I just don't know, but I can't read minds.

  7. Oh, Charlotte, I can totally relate! Although my hubby isn't a farmer, I sometimes help him move a vehicle, etc. And they do give you the impression that they want you to read their mind!?!

  8. It's amazing that they think we know exactly what they want us to do. Different story when it is the other way around! :)
