And on the eighth day, God looked down on his planned paradise and said, I need a caretaker. So God made a farmer God said, I need somebody willing to get up before dawn. Milk cows work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper and then go to town to stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board. So God made a farmer. I need somebody with arms strong enough to Russell, a calf and yet gentle enough to deliver his own grandchild. Somebody to call hogs, tame cantankerous machinery, come home hungry, have toe wait lunch until his wife's done feeding visiting ladies and tell the ladies to be sure and come back real soon and mean it.
