Rock, Paper, Scissors… Dynamite and Guns? April 25, 2011

Filed under: Country Life — Piper Long @ 8:26 am

We try to involve our children in as much of the farming and ranching operation as possible. But sometimes, it’s just too dangerous to involve the little whippersnappers.

Like sorting cows.

Which just so happens to be the story of my life. Cows break through fence, cows get mixed up, cows get sorted… cows have calves, calves need weaned, cows get sorted… cows from the farm, cows from the ranch, cows on leased pasture… infinity and until forever more… I will be sorting cows.

And while I’m sorting cows, my poor children are left to entertain themselves. I love to see what they come up with.

This time, it was rock, paper, scissors.

With a little dynamite and guns mixed in.

When did rock, paper, scissors get violent?

And which one wins… the gun or the dynamite?

Help me Rhonda.

    Oh, dynamite for sure! One of our favorite shows is “The Big Bang Theory;” it’s about a gaggle of geeks and their antics. One of my favorite episodes depicted them playing Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock. Spock won every time.

    Your boys are so blessed to grow up watching you work so hard! They’re never going to forget what a great momma you are!
