Guest post written by my buddy Bernardo Graham
I got satellite internet service for the farm because I got sick and tired of my kids saying I didn’t answer my cell phone. I don’t know what part of “I don’t get service out here” they don’t understand but they’re always yelling at me telling me they’re worried about me that something’s happened with all this big farm equipment.
I love being out here by myself though and since my wife died it’s been a bit lonely. I am glad my kids care about me so much but I also can’t spend all day inside checking my email – the chickens need to be fed and the cows milked and I’ve got all kinds of tending to the crops that I’ve got to do.
I love my kids to death but unless they want to go outside to the farm with me and get the work done they need to just leave me alone and have faith that I‘m a grown man and can more or less take care of myself, you know?
