I must admit it...I'd like to have a small farm (10 acres or so) with several barns (or one, GIANT pole barn).
I have a lot of friends (outside of our retirement village here on the lake) that have farms and the older I get...the MORE I'd like to be plowin'...plantin'...and mowin'!
Even here in East Tennessee...the farms are being bought up faster than you can say "There goes another real estate auction"
Property taxes are gowin' up as more young folks discover the southeast and it's easy way of livin'!
BUT, inspite of NOT livin' on a small farm, I must admit that warm summer evenings sittin' with Carol Elizabeth down on the boat dock, feeding the ducks and watchin' fish jump...while viewin' those spectacular Tennessee Orange sunsets...LIFE IS VERY WORTHWHILE JUST THE WAY IT'S TURNED OUT!
