It's just complete and utter anarchy in the GFF Blog-o-verse. What's next?
Horned Fanged Bats?!?
Each year there is at least one thing that serves as a consistent "inside joke" for the farmers and the farm crew. This year there were two in particular that had a longer shelf-life. The "horned-fanged bat" is something that requires hand motions to indicate horns and fangs and came about during one of our lunchtime forays into the absurd.
Oh wait. That's how the other one came about too. And here it is:
Who said farming can't be fun?
And maybe sometimes... a little odd:
Ok, maybe Hobnob is not feeling more positive about this little bit of absurdity. In fact, Bree is looking a bit annoyed as well.
When we take the time to do something just a little absurd and maybe a little creative it shows that we have some positive energy - even if it is just a response to things that are difficult. If you see a recent picture of one of your farmers doing a selfie - like this one:
You've got to figure there is a little bit of a sense of humor still intact. It's a good sign. It means they aren't about to give up. In fact, they see reasons to have hope. And, if your personal farmers see reasons to have hope, then maybe you should work to find your own reasons for hope as well.
It's an interesting ability we humans have. Take a negative situation - like rats killing turklets on the farm.
But, it doesn't have to be as ridiculous or as dramatic as a rat with fat um.. hips, stuck in a wall. It could be a farmer mowing down a field of ragweed with the rotary mower on the tractor who takes the time to work his way AROUND a patch of goldenrod.
It's all about letting yourself look at things like this picture and poke fun at yourself.
Well, I've got fence posts up for a permanent fence for the turkey pasture. But, clearly, there is no fence there, so we're using a portable electric netting fence immediately to one side of the permanent "not quite a fence."
When time flies and you just have to make do, you have an opportunity to walk on the absurd side.
