    You may be a country gal if . . .

    . . . you’ve ever doctored your animals yourself.
    . . . “preparing chicken for dinner” involves a lot more than getting a package from the freezer.
    . . . the Tractor Supply store has ever opened 30 minutes early because you called with an emergency.
    . . . you’ve ever spat on your hands as “a pre-wash.”
    . . . you know how to blow your nose without a hanky or tissue.
    . . . you’ve been called “sir” by someone misled by your boots, barn coat, and cap.
    . . . you know that saying a guy is “as smart as a button buck” isn’t a compliment.
    . . . you expect your kids to walk anywhere that’s less than 2 miles away because you’d do it yourself.
    . . . people stop you in the hall at church to request a dozen eggs, a pint of honey, or some other produce.
    . . . you consider a new pitchfork a thoughtful birthday gift.
    . . . you have one pair of high heels, but 4 pairs of boots -- for rain, mud, snow, and dress.
    . . . your children have a lot of insight into where babies come from.
    . . . you realize that perpetually muddy floors are part of the territory.
    . . . the power goes out and your first thought is of the heat lamps in the barn/coop.
    . . . you do a “happy dance” at the mailbox when the seed catalogs come in the Spring.

    I love it!

    One of my favorite birthday gifts last year was a spading fork ( like a pitch fork) with a fiberglass handle!

    Around here we say "You may be a high desert dweller" if you take your 4 wheel drive to the mailbox, you ride your horse to Rite Aid, and have no idea what a sidewalk is.

    You might be a country gal if... use the truck scale at the elevators in town to weigh your children. Drive onto the scales with the kid in the truck, then tell the kid to get out. Subtract weight without child in truck from weight with child in truck to figure out how much your kid weighs.
