my dad used to take me out to the farm a lot to 'help'... yeah- like picking snails off orange trees, or supervising the truck. YAY. lol - He always had an UGLY straw hat of some sort, which was in likeness to the one HIS father wore on the farm, and big sun glasses.
when M'Adam and I decided to work on the yard, I thought we needed some trees...so a few valencia orange trees came home (hardest to kill, sweetest juice). I also got a plum tree and started a few seedlings of everything from corn, to lettuce, onions and melons...I can't wait! well, M'Adam buys me this gardening hat... really funny straw thing...and as I was out watering and cultivating my 'crops' with bare feet and ugly hat I thought "CRAP". I'm becoming my father.
Love you Dad!!
