meal to the field #8

my farm is nestled between two towns, one with a population hovering around 200 and the other at around 300... the smaller town has the store and school... the larger town has the bank, rink and doctor's clinic... neither have a paved street but both have a post office and a bar... if you come...

yellow squash banana bread

meal to the field #6

 I feel undesired... not by the farmer... I feel sufficiently desired by him...  just realizing that I'm at an age where the older men that used to creepily check me out no longer do...
