When I’m out in the fields harvesting, I have lots of time to think.
Today’s thought: Did they/do they have chiggers out on the Great Plains? I was thinking about the opening scene of the Little House on the Prairie TV show, where the girls are running through the fields, and thinking that if they do have chiggers in that area of the country, those real farmers in the olden days had to have been killer miserable! Evidence of this morning’s chigger coffee break at my panty line is indeed itchy, thanks for asking, because we SURE do have chiggers in this part of the world!
Second thought of the day: Those beautiful fields of waving grass that those girls are running through are dangerous! They look smooth, but when you try to walk across them, the ground underneath that deceptively smooth grass is uneven. I invariably fall, or at the very least trip when I cut across a field. If my fields could be called liars, they would win the liar of the year award. My ankle is wrapped after a stint with the ice pack.
