August 11th…“BACK ON YOUR FARM IN MINNESOTA, DID YOU EVER SEE WORK AND PLEASURE HAPPEN AT THE SAME TIME?”
POEM – “Havin’ Fun When There Weren’t No Sun!” by N. Elliott Noorlun
Havin’ fun, When there weren’t no sun, And ya had some chores to do,
Was an easy task, Just had to ask, “Hey Cousins, Ya wanna come too?”
Now my Cousin Val, She was a pal, She’d squeeze me right on sight!”
Brenda n Dee, They’d come with glee, When the Summer weather was right.
In the Summer rain, We had much to gain, When it came to work AND fun.
Had to walk to the pasture, To get the cows, Now our fun had just begun.
No need umbrellas, Let’s just get wet, As we walked down gravel road.
The rain was as warm, As an indoor shower, While we hopped like a horny-toad.
We were doin’ work, That of gathering cows, To come home for the evening milking,
But we didn’t care, About soaking hair, Or that clothes were soggy and wilting.
When we got to the meadow, Sis, Cousins n this fellow,
We all started yelling, “COME BOSS!!”
The cows heard our call, And walked through grass tall,
As some pebbles we’d playfully toss.
Soooo, work can be fun, When there ain’t any sun, It’s all just a matter of fact.
For whoever has, The most fun WINS!, It’s all in how, You decide to act! 😉
