Rule Five: The Farmer’s Daughter

I attended a local JC my first year after high school and for those couple of summers I worked for a local farmer, “Farmer Dave.”


Farmer Dave was an older farmer, probably just around 60 at that time and he had ceased being a big time farmer a few years previous.  When I worked with him he sold eggs and insurance, at anytime had 10 calves and 20 steers, 20 acres of hay and 40 acres of corn.  He rented out the rest of the acreage that he had and was doing pretty well for himself.  He sold a lot of hay and most of the corn we ground and fed to the cattle.

One can always look back in life and with a fogged memory, misremember how things were, but even at the time I was working for Farmer Dave, I knew that doing that job was going to be one of the best jobs of my life.  It was hard work but not brutal, always kept busy so 8-9 hours a day went by quickly, plenty of interesting challenges, but the best part of the job was…………………..


The Farmer’s Daughter !!!!

Farmer Dave had 5 daughters that had about 20 years between the first and last.  There was about 8 years between the last two.  Julie, the youngest, was a year older than me and the same age as my older sister so I knew her from growing up and attending the same grade school, high school and church. (Small town !!)

A very pretty girl, 5’6″, 125 pounds, long blonde hair, classic Scandinavian features.

I had too much going on in my head the first summer and really didn’t pay too much attention to Julie or have any thoughts about her, but the second summer was different.  The first summer I think Julie spent most her her time going to work with her mother (high school librarian) but the second summer she was seemed to be home most of the time.


One thing Julie did do,was drive the tractor when I baled hay !!!


She would wear a pair of “Daisy Dukes” and a 1980’s string bikini top !!!!

When you drive the tractor for baling, you sit sideways and watch the hay get taken in which meant that every time I looked forward, WHAT A VIEW !!  Yeah, she knew I was looking.

How do I know?  She told me.  I was pretty sure that she was not seeing anyone at the time and halfway through the summer I took a chance and asked her out and she said “yes.”  We went out about 5-6 times, went swimming, to the movies, nothing too serious but I was really glad we spent some time together that summer.



She still lives in the little town we grew up in and I see her 4-5 times a year at events. (Still looks pretty darn good!!)



Rule Five: Redheads

One day during the final week of eighth grade, there was an announcement: “Any eight-grader wishing to sign up for high school choir will be dismissed from last period to do so. That is all.”

The guy sitting next to me poked me.

“I don’t want to join choir.”

“No, we get out of 7th period, sign up and the goof off the rest of the time.  Just drop the class during summer before we get our schedules.”


Hey, not a bad idea. I never missed a chance to goof off and quite frankly was very impressed at how quickly this guy could come up with a “plan.”  I don’t remember which federal penitentiary he’s in now.

Well, flash forward to the week before high school starts and I get my schedule.  CRAP !!! I didn’t drop the class!!

Well, first day of school I make a beeline to the Vice Principal’s office and I tell him that I don’t want this class.  He said “Fine”, and handed me a form and said, “Have the choir director sign this and we’ll get you another 1st period class.”


So off I bounded with my get out of jail free card up the stairs to the choir room and when I entered: The room was full of high school WOMEN, not Jr. high girls, WOMEN!!!!

Holy Crap !!! Even with the accelerating loss of blood to my brain I was able to do the quick math and figured the chick to dude ratio was about 8 to 1. WOW!!!

I crumpled up my transfer sheet, tossed it in the garbage and took my place on the riser.



As an uber insecure, painfully extreme introvert, choir was heaven for me!!  It forced be to be around WOMEN and to interact wit them and I had a lot of opportunities that I otherwise would not have had if I wasn’t in choir.  It was my sophomore year in choir that I met my first girlfriend.  If I hadn’t been in choir and if she hadn’t been so forward, I probably wouldn’t have had a girlfriend for many more years!


My first girlfriend was a redhead and that was something that has had a lasting affect on me.

I both thank her and curse her.

Two Men Beat Black Man, MAGA Hat Involved…….


The incident happened on April 13 in the area of the 18000 block of Cottage Garden Dr. According to Montgomery County Police, Crawford and Roberson approached the victim, who was wearing a MAGA hat, and asked why he had it on. Before walking away, the victim told the suspects that he was entitled to his own views.

Authorities say the pair then repeatedly struck the victim, demanding that he take off the hat. When the man fell to the ground, Crawford and Roberson stole and destroyed his belongings.


Oops !!! It’s not like you thought it was going to be !!!



Chicago Sun Times Beclowns Self X2

More examples of the horrendously poor state of “journalism” in not just the world, but here near Chicago.


WOW !!!!! Trump’s lawyer owns a company that might have ordinance violations !!!!

“Ordinance violations.”


Overwhelming evidence that the previous administration illegally spied on a presidential candidate and YOU DON’T CARE !!!!!!



Hillary says :”We are living through a war on truth, facts and reason.”

The irony burns like a thousand suns.


The piss poor newspaper called the Sun Times thinks that’s a statement that’s worth printing on the front page?  Granted, They’ve been running cover for her for 25 years.

Overwhelming evidence that the previous administration illegally spied on a presidential candidate and YOU DON’T CARE !!!!!!


Gratuitous Super Hot Olympic Babe (non nudity)

I was minding my own business the other night, just sitting in my easy chair reading my paper, and the wife comes in and turns  the Olympics on the television.

The American ladies beach volleyball team was playing the Italian team.  It was hard not not watch,  the American team (2012 Gold Medal winners May/Walsh) stomped the bejesus out of the Italian team.

BUT !!!

There was a player on the Italian team that was not only a great player, but I am going to go ahead and proclaim her the HOTTEST female on the planet !!!
