That Elusive Pot O' Gold

That Pot O' Gold!
 The Pot O' Gold

Sometimes life can be quite challenging 'on farm', and when you buy a place such as our 'Pikey's Pocket' that is, hmm, let's just say a little in need of repair, well the list is long.

It is what it is..

Most of you could give a suggestion or two to help.

Such as 'make better choices'

And I would thank you politely. 

Many of the 'tricky' farming world factors are not a choice. Such as the current financial circumstances regarding the not-sale of cattle properties for example (if you want one just let me know, we have a spare!) 

The financial 'trickiness' that nips options such as get a contractor in the bud.  Ah, the list goes on.

Then of course there is that great, almighty factor.  The weather.  Yes we have droughts, followed by floods.  Ahh, sigh.  Yet then we have rainbows!  Beautiful, glorious rainbows!

On the day that this rainbow lit the sky in a majestic near dark glow of crimson and pinks there were plenty of challenges ...

I think we have already got the gold, it just isn't quite in a pot!
   ...  such as the car battery giving up when 'old mate' has just left for a week away at work and all the town in off celebrating Christmas and New Year.   Rice and potatoes, arts and crafts, can go a long way at a time like that! 

Or the hot water tap breaking so I can only have a cold shower, or a bath in the laundry sink with the kiddies!

Oh, and how that list goes on!   Yet here is this, beautiful gift at the end of a somewhat frustrating day.

I don't need that Pot O' Gold.  

Who needs one of those, when you have what I have here at 'Pikey's Pocket'
