Chats on the Farm House Porch
Here is this week's questions:
1. Please tell me a fond autumn memory. Or tell me something interesting you're doing now that fall is here.
We really won't get fall until December. But the time the trees turn it will be almost Christmas. Isn't that terrible. I guess I need to try my hand at doing some memory making for fall.
2. What's your favorite kind of cheese?
Not a big fan of cheese. Wait, I take that back, Cream Cheese. I love that stuff and I think I could eat a whole block.
3. Have you ever been in a wedding, other than your own (if applicable)?
Oh gosh I was in so many weddings. I can't even remember how many but I had every color of the rainbow bridesmaids dresses hanging in my closet for years. I was glad when my girls got big enough to play dress up.
4. Did you ever do anything as a child to earn money? (Lemon aid stand, crafts, mother's helper, chores, etc.)
I raised calves and helped my grand parents work. My grandparents bought a Jersey Milk cow for me named Susie, I got to keep the money when we sold her calf, then that went into a savings account starting when I was five. Then we worked raising steers, sheep and show cattle. We worked all of the time so I don't remember ever being without a job and then I went to work in my Dad's grocery store when I turned 17 but I still had to work on my Dad's farm during lambing and calving season.
5. Do you wear a watch?
Always but I never look at it, I just wear it out of habit. I let my grandsons play with it when they come over. They like to turn the little button on the side.
Thank you to Patrice for this. Each week it is nice to let someone else do the thinking up a post for me.
I hope you have a wonderful week.
