The crazy life advetures of a country girl

What do country people do for fun you ask well let me fill you in on the crazy sorts of things we chicken growing, bear sighting, mosquito slapping happy people try.

We dress up giant teddy bears, and stick them in massage chairs for a little rub down....

We feed wild turkeys that wander into our yard. She was sooo cute we could have invited her into our house for supper. But she was way too tame and must have belonged to some one. so we bade her farewell and hoped to see her again, we have not so far.

We make our food fun!!

This is not even at the top, of the line. The first test trip.
We risk our lives in the name of adrenalin.

This is our today project to build and test our new zip line! This man was the fearless commando who risked his neck to test the strength of our VERY high zip line. The guys had the ladder on top of the bucket of the tractor to get to the perfect sweet spot to set this line up it was a whole day project and man did it look hard, scary and fun!

The moment my heart nearly leaped out of my ribcage was when Dear son #1 decided to get onto the tractor.
picture this bucket extended a fully extended ladder on top of the bucket and brave man at the top. Dear son knocks the leaver to the bucket, bucket starts to move and just about sends Mr. commando to his early death.....I just about upchucked!
Dear son felt so bad we didn't see him for nearly 2 hours, poor little gipper!
Mr Commando was not even shaken, nerves of steel!

Although I think Dear Husband was ready to quit right then and there.
This is the test run you see here. It worked fine, but I think the guys feel we need a better wheel thingy for more speed, yikes!

Next step a way to get to the zip line (other than a tractor) and a platform!
Here is the happy result!

So as you can see we are starting to embrace the country life with style with grace and delicacy....NOT!

Any time you feel the hankering to dress teddy s, feed the wild life, play with your food or risk your life in the name of some good Ol' fun come on down we would love to see you!

Glad this didn't happen but golly, I was scared!
