The Birth of A Blog And Celebrating The Birth Of A Nation


Not only is today Independence Day in the United States, it’s also American Redneck Day, American Hillbilly Day, Barbeque Day, National Barbequed Spareribs Day, National Country Music Day, and even Tom Sawyer Fence-Painting Day in Hannibal, Missouri.

That all sounds pretty country to me, making this a great day to start a running commentary on life in the country — my ramblings about rural life.

Living in the country has its’ rhythms, flowing with the seasons. It has it quirks, with the unexpected happening with livestock, crops, pets and people. One minute it’s a peaceful existence, the next madness and mayhem. Sometimes it’s fun, sometimes it’s sad, but rarely is it boring. It’s a patchwork quilt of events of all shapes and colors, to wrap yourself in and find comfort.

Many people live the country life. Many more dream of doing it. And even more enjoy hearing about life in the country. “Rural Ramblings” will take you there. So drop in often, read the latest tale, and enjoy my take on life in rural America.

Y’all come back!
