Yes, I know, you have all told me that was crazy. But as long as I was out there I thought hey! I will flatten those ridges by stomping them down.
Did I tell you those ruts were about 4" deep? Do you know how slippery mud is?
No I didn't fall. This time.
I decided to call Patty Dunn and text with her while I was stomping ruts. Only I was speaking into the phone. and whenever I said Ruts, the phone wrote Rats. Of course I was just hitting send without reading it. BUSY HERE!!
So Patty thinks I was now infested with RATS! and that I was trying to stomp the rats and how I was trying to stomp them down into 4" deep puddles and rivers of water!!
And she is alarmed about the RATS and I was splashing in the puddles with the RUTS and...
It started sprinkling and I was splashing all over trying to stomp down those ridges and up drives the delivery truck for my propane. Did I KNOW that I had mud on my face? No. However, I credit the driver with astonishing good manners because I had to tell him how much fuel I wanted and he never even batted an eyelash. Did not ask what I was doing. I am assuming he thought the crazy person from Alaska was so delighted with a little rain and mud that I was like a kid out in the puddles.
He finished filling the propane tank and said have a nice day with a great big smile as he handed me the bill then drove off. This just reminds me of him. He deserves flowers for being so nice.
I came into the house and took off my boots, then went into the bathroom and lo and behold!! I hope you can imagine what I looked like because I didn't take a photo. Seriously?!?
Pigs and rats and mud and ruts. Life in the country is awesome... Mama said there'd be days like this...right?
Please comment so I know you are there!
