I can pick out 5 distinct moments that shaped my love of country living.
Number 1: The Dixie Chicks and "Wide Open Spaces."
Number 2: Skip. My childhood horse. He deserves his own separate post.
Number 3: My college Western Lit class reading Edward Abbey's idea of "livin' off the land."
Number 4: Reading Farm City while I nursed Luella as a baby. One of my favorite books. Read it. It will make you laugh.
Number 5: Viral YouTube videos of goats.
I think I can add "Texas living" to the list and make that Number 6. Also, where does one buy a Texas Longhorn?? I think he would be good company for my goats.
Urban Farming is my next venture. But only in like 5 years when the kids are old enough to help out and aren't afraid of goats. I need to find a good petting zoo . . .
