Project Yellow....Take Four

John Deere could I not post it for Project Yellow?
For our first Christmas, The Husband gave me a JD riding lawn mower...
I was thrilled - honest...I wanted it more than diamonds, more than
anything that could have come in a Nordstrom's box.
That mower lasted more than 20 years, the above shot is of the seat of the
"new rider"...she's a beauty.

This one is much bigger than the little rider, it's for scooping up
feed with a big red bucket. A few years ago I got really good at
running this beast. Before that, I was rather skittish when it came
to running farm equipment, things changed here on the
farm and I accepted the responsibilities of feeding livestock.
The Husband wasn't around during the day so making
sure "the girls" got fed was up to me, I even got good at
backing up the tractor with a mixer wagon attatchment...
I was officially a farm chick.

Farm chicks need cool boots, olive green just doesn't cut it.

Shift it sister.

Oh my gosh! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the boots!!

They are officially named, Hot-Chick-Farmgirl Boots.

Hot-Chick-Farmgirl Boots! I love it!

You could do a TV show - Farming for the Hot Chick - there'd be fashion tips and instructions on operating equipment while looking fabulous.

You'd be like Martha Stewart, only a real person ;)
