I too, fit that description, although, sometimes I feel older than I really am, but always fat and usually always cranky.
Living on a farm in SE South Dakota, We use to farm "BIG" (360acres) but that old part snuck in so, we just farm our own ground which is 80 acres of native grass. I swath that once a year--in August, usually, and it's baled into big bales. We have some livestock, although, we've cut down on that, too.

"We are what we repeatedly do; excellence then is not a single act, but a habit." - Aristotle



Don't be content with average. Average is as close to the bottom as it is to the top.

Hi Laurel,
Welcome to the team. I am an "other". I don't even have my acre and sheep anymore since I rented them both out to my handyman. I just like rubbing elbows with farmers because I grew up on stories of farming. My maternal grandpa homesteaded in North Dakota and raised horses for the cavalry. My Dad farmed wheat and corn with horses in Kansas till the dust bowl blew him all the way to Oregon.

I finished assembling my new green house this morning. It is perfect. I will have a dry place to stand when I put the dogs in the yard and I can start all my seeds now and not worry about them rotting in the yard or freezing their toes at night.

When I started the team oh so many years ago I named it Old fat farmers, G D ASHWARN22 wanted to join and didn't fit that description and suggested I add OTHERS. Had a lot of fun with the name and most aren't offended.
Life is full of ROSE'S, it's you choice weather you want to always hold onto the thorn's or smell the pretty fragrance, just another Warnerism.

Think ya'll missed the cranky part in the description, but I fit the rest... I'm old, fat, and a farmer (and sometimes an other). Determined to lose this weight 'cause my blood pressure is soaring and diabetes runs in the family (I'm the only sibling who does not have type 2 diabetes at this point, with two of them on insulin shots).
