Lately I have been reading…

…this hilarious book…

It has lot’s of fun facts about farming life from…

“Calving the Heifers: Wherein one learns about midnight duties required of a good Country Woman and how to serve as a midwife at the birth of a calf.”


Pigs and Pigging: Where in one learns that pigs require tender loving care and that it is a sympathetic Country Woman who can sooth a troubled sow.”

It’s a hoot if you care for something fun, yet factual.

    I can believe this must be hysterical and so true for these women that worked themselves literally into the ground .. such a hard life has to have a great sense of humour ?
