Thanks. She’s a good girl, I take her for granted way too much. Her farm experience and knowledge puts me to shame but I’m trying to catch up.
LOL, no not plump in the least. I would like to have a bit more “insulation” to deal with the winters. But I just layer on the clothes, starting with the long johns, t shirt, sweatshirt, and parka if it’s really cold. Older? I’m 52, seems unreal.
I found some flannel lined jeans at Rural King, they are awesome, sometimes I can wear those instead of the long johns. If interested, don’t buy the same size of flannel pants as your regular jeans, see correction below.
And, no overalls, yet. I’ve almost made the complete transformation from city boy to Hillbilly. My progression so far:
- Tractor, plow, disc, bush hog - check
- Ford truck - check
- Rifles, and assorted other firearms - check
- Ammo - check
- Food canner - check
- Chainsaw - check
- Muck boots - check
- Big tiller (front tine, of course) - check
- Farm dog - check, although coon/hound dog is preferred.
- Hunting blind - check
Still to come- 4wd truck, chickens, wood stove, overalls, still (?!?). Is it illegal to make your own 'shine, as long as you’re not selling it? Don’t think the Mrs would allow it at any rate.
Correction: those flannel jeans size comments were wrong. For example, if you wear 32×34 regular jeans, you would need like 34x32 in the flannel ones. They are thicker so you need a larger waist size, and shorter length. Sorry!
