That more genteel pace probably explains the guardrail you see here. I doubt it would hold back an out-of-control 18-wheeler. But folks don't drive like that out here, anyway. At least that's what I like to think as I take in this scene and feel the summery breeze on my face.
Your turn: What's the appeal of farm country to you?
Um... I grew up on a farm. It holds no appeal for me. It's a lot of hard work is what it is.
Although, now that I think about it, the work held less pressure - there were periods where you had to work long hours and hard, but you weren't juggling many things - you had one thing to do and you had to do it, and so you'd do it 14, 16 hours a day for a week. There's a beautiful simplicity to much of it - mowing took 2 days, so I'd start Saturday morning and mow all weekend, finishing just before dinner on Sunday. Or if it was summer, I'd mow from 7:00 - 11:00 for a week.
Not much holds an out-of-control 18 wheeler...
