2010 Update: Farming in the rain.

Farming in the rain. Do it in only light rain or misting. Don't do it ever if there is lightenng or mud.
Lightening will scare your team (formerly of horses, now teams of workers).

This is one of those words where you feel like you have something stuck in your throat and you want to say "Excuse me" afterwards.

"Euchre! Excuse me."

Actually, thinking back I think this is how my dad used to sneeze.

Ha ha Jenn.

Looks like a word puzzle... would make a great crossword entry.

pia said...

Totally agree with Jenn. I was staring at the word going "yuck, gross, horrible..." and more

gardening in the rain is a top 10 activity...number one is dancing in the rain naked with the one you love
now gardening in a warm rain naked
as one dances between the growing rows of goodness would be a nice blend of both.................
as for card games
cribbage is game of choice

Peace Today and Always

Jim, that was my thought. When I was a younger feller and the downpour started, we all used to rush to a barn where someone would take out his deck.

Jenn, you can also call it "Doppelkopf."

Terry, on crosswords it's usually spelled eucher.

"Yuck, gross, horrible, euchre?" Pia?

Bear, I'm an old hand at cribbage, too. Gardening and farming are different things.

Nessa said...

I like singing in the rain which I could do while farming because I also like playing in the mud.

I'm sorry if I have cheated you out of any originality. ;)

Doug, Tom & Icy are still occasionally playing at Growing Up Lammy. They are just taking a break from visiting.

I never played in the mud anymore when I grew up. Oh! Suddenly I understand why people have children!

Vanessa Kilmer I was gonna try and take a break from this blog today. I was gonna soak in a hot bubble bath while reading The Official Website of Vanessa Kilmer's NaNoWriMo.

But this is much much better !!




Nessa said...


You have made my day. You've confirmed that I have fulfilled my place in the world and I have been yelled at in print.

And to top all of that off, you are spreading my name around. Gotta love free publicity and the attention of admirers.

Right back atcha baby doll!

When was the last time you won anything besides the heart of Brad Pitt and the lottery?

p.s. Now that I don't care about you anymore, I can unsubscribe twice to the official website of vanessa kilmer with a clean conscience.

ah, before I looked up the pronunciation, I thought it was some kind of clay-soil that the Neanderthals decorated bones of their dead with.

All these games I didn't know about:)

Jim said...

k.a.gardner said...

Ex farmer's son, Jim and his wife Mrs. Jim "lucre" Haven-dick, the belle of New Orleans, have come to town selling their ware$.
