35. What a great

 

memory. Thanks for sharing. Being in the country was probably much better. I wish I had a little farm...I grew up on my grandparent's farm. It was my grandmother's family that owned it but her husband decided it should go to the only boy in the family.

None of his kids could be bothered with farming so he leases it out for corn and soybean. My mom has her tiny house on the farm. All the kids have built big houses on the farm and one of them took over the Big Red Brick house where Grandma raised her kids. I lived there for awhile when my mother got divorced.

When Grandma's kids were grown and had started their own families, a new one-story ranch was built for the 2 of them to live. It was right across the street from my mom's little house so I spent a lot of time there. The son got the Big Red House. I was the only grandkid she would let hang around her house.

Once her son asked her to babysit his three kids and she said, "I'm done with taking care of kids." But she and I got along fine. I really never required babysitting. I think I was always an adult. Well, until I was a teenager.

Why shouldn't someone who works 70 hours a week make a good living? I've always thought that unions should have spent time trying to unionize Pink Collar jobs.
