"Where the heck are you two going?" I inquire
"Out back to pick berries and see Dad," was the chorused reply.
"Did you set the water, Anna? I questioned, half knowing the answer but hoping none the less.
"Oh, shoot, no." came the expected answer.
"Get to it before you go," I insisted. She took off and went and did the job she was left to do a half an hour ago. That Anna, she isn't blatantly rebellious, she just has my side tracked gene in spades. And because it comes from me I can be both merciful toward her and terribly hard on her, cause I know what her life will be like if she doesn't get it under control now.
"Hey, what do you have in your hand?" I asked her sister.
"Whatcha doing with that?"
"I'm taking it to Dad"
What a gal. I'm telling ya, that girl belongs on a real farm with a big strong, hard working, thirsty, beer drinking man someday.
Wait a second, I should have thought of that beer, I could have won me some points this afternoon. It could have been worth a new rose arbor or a hot water heater in my laundry/propagation house.
Oh well, better luck next time Lanny, see you later Bet.
