Quilting, Farming, Variety

When the farmer laughs...

you know it must be something worth reading.  He takes a weekly paper, Farm Talk, and I don't usually even look at it since it's filled with ads for farm equipment, tractors, auctions, etc.  But when I hear him laughing and he says, "You ought to read this!" then I give a little of my time. 

His favorite column is "Viewing the Field with Milo Yield";  since there is no other name given as the writer, we'll assume his name is Milo.  He writes about things he has experienced in his 71 years of living, from farm to current happenings.  Then he always throws in a paragraph or two of humor such as the following:

"Another overheard coffee shop statement: 'The reason why baby diapers have brand names such as Luvs and Huggies, while undergarments for old people are called Depends is that when babies mess in their pants, people are still gonna Luv'em and Hug'em.  When old people do the same, it Depends on who's in the will.'"

Think about it,


  1. Cute! Keeping your sense of humor no matter your place in life is half the battle I think.

  2. LOL. that's a good one Charlotte. Thanks for sharing.Thank you for your comments on mine. We'll just pray that spring comes early this year. You take care, hugs

  3. lol I'd say that Milo has a humorous view on life. Nothing like a chuckle to start a person thinking for the day. :)

  4. I love this! Thank you so much for visiting my blog. We have 6 rescue cats and my late mom's mini dachshund. Hope you'll visit again and meet the critters! Mildred

  6. Great sense of humor! Might be true sometimes! Nancy

  7. LOL...

    Here's one we saw on a sign along the road when I was a kid:
    "If you plan on crossing this field, make sure you can do it in two seconds. Our bull came make it in three."

  8. Oh, Charlotte...this is just too precious! I could just hear this coming out of the mouth of my grandfather...he always had something to say that would bring a smile to our faces. What a blessing to have people such as these around us!

    Have a wonderful week!

    I use to think I would only leave the woods once or twice a month
    but truly I have to do it more often or I will go crazy :)
