Ok farmwife, I have a question. Went to college in what we called the country. Is cow tipping ��real or something u just tell us city folk about to snicker behind our backs. ��


I was rereading this thread to cheer me up and found this from momoftwinboys.

The answer to your question is YES to both!

Yes, cow tipping is real and.......
Yes to us country folks laughing behind your backs.

Another Farmwife Story.
(Please imagine that I'm telling this story sitting on my rocker on my front porch)
Theirs a story around these here parts.
That a city slicker wanted to prove to a ruff cowboy that he was man enough to to stand up to anyone. He said give me a test, any test.
Well the cowboy quietly said while pointing to a field over yonder, well if your brave enough to go cow tippin I wreckin your man enough to be considered a cowboy. The city slicker puffed up his chest and marched off to the field and began to push with all his might. It was harder than he thought. So he rolled up his sleeves to his well pressed and starch shirt and even pushed harder.
Well with a mighty thundering crash he pushed it over and ran back, well walked briskly, to the cowboy and said THERE!!!!
The cowboy said with a sneaker, that their was mighty fine pushin on your part. Now go back and stand up my fence post the cows are on the other side of it.

We're going on the Allure of the Seas. Looks like an incredible ship! It's a caribbean cruise with stops in Haiti, Jamaica and Mexico. I'm really excited My husband and I went on a cruise before but, it was for our 1st anniversary so, it's been a long, long, long time!

Kim, absolutely hide in my luggage... with all the 'skinny' clothes I'll be packing, there'll be lots of room!

And, yes, gotta cut out those beavertails, s'mores, fruit loops, doughnuts, pizza...

I'm all for a joint cruise.
Just as long as we each have our own restrooms.
Nothing nastier than mothers knocking each other out
to get their kids to the bathroom first.

Just for a smile...

He didn't like the casserole
And he didn't like my cake,
Said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.

I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.

I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Then I turned around and
Smacked the sh-t out of him....

Like his mother used to do.

Tesscorm, DustyKat has to have a smiley to go with that poem!

I found this joke about colonoscopy.



I went into my proctologist’s office for my first rectal exam.

His new nurse, Evelyn, took me to an examining room and told me to get undressed, and have a seat until the doctor could see me.

She said that he would only be in a few minutes.

After putting on the gown that she gave me, I sat down.

While waiting I observed that there were three items on a stand, next to the exam table:

A Tube of K-Y jelly, a rubber glove and a beer.

When the doctor finally came in, I said, “Look Doc, I am a little confused. This is my first exam… I know what the K-Y is for, and I know what the glove is for, but can you tell me what the BEER is for?

At that Doctor Paul became noticeably outraged and stormed over to the door.

He flung the door open and yelled to his nurse…

“Evelyn!!! Goddammit woman! I said a BUTT LIGHT!”

A cruise Tess!!!!!!!! Hot diggity dog!!!!!!!!

I hope it is the Allure of the seas...



and not the Pirates of the Caribbean!...



Come on guys, what's all this talk about squeezing into luggage, the ship has life boats doesn't it?! We just gather at the dock, go on board for some pre sailing drinks and then we just pile in the life boats. Lose weight? Sheesh, who needs to do that when you have a life boat!

Dusty.
