I Tried … Really!

Frozen hoses

Frozen hoses

October 26, 2013

   Why is it that every year the first snow catches me off guard? I laid these hoses up on the trailer in the sun. I was sure they would warm up and be easy to coil, then put away. I laughed when I saw them, buried in snow and frozen in spots… I tried I really did.

   One time I went to a horse sale in mid October. It was on Sweetest Day in fact. I sat on my hands just looking at all the horses. Then, I saw her … a chunky black Percheron mare. Her name was Rose. I bought her and brought her home. My wife asked me what I was thinking. I told her that I didn’t mean to buy a horse… but come on, her name is Rose. It’s Sweetest Day… I got her for you! … My wife gave me “the look” as I was saying … I tried, I really did!

   Tonight , a cold rain falls on the farm. The animals are all tucked in and I too am done for the day. The rain falls on the roof and soaks the water laden soil. I think about all the work waiting on a nice day and I realize…it will wait.  When folks ask why my wood is not in…at least I can say … I tried… really!  😮
