Call Before You Come

Or I might be walking around wearing a torn t-shirt and chore boots. And nothing else.


Kinda like when the meter readers (two of them!) came over yesterday.

I’M JUST SAYIN’.

    HaHa!!I can relate to this, as I did alittle nude sunbathing today and it felt soooooo good. However, I mini-panicked every time I heard a car go by on my dirt road. Tomorrow, I’m closing the gate at the end of my driveway and stripping it all off!!!!!!

    I know what you mean, luckily I shop at the big and tall mens department for my T-shirts so they hit to just above the knee. And at hitting the half century mark myself it does scare ppl.

    I peg out washing and go to the trash with my nightie on – anything less the neighbours (who can all see in the yard) would have apoplexy! :bugeyed: I’m only jealous really – oh! the freedom :)

    :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: That’s the joy of working at home — and one of the reasons we put up a 6 foot privacy fence in in the back yard (we live in town)!

    Did they say anything — sorry or anything — or did they just go on their way?

    2 words – COTTON SUNDRESS – invest in 2 or 3 of these and you could cover your assets while still getting a nice refreshing breeze up your (you know – :devil2: )

    LOL – you crack me up!

    Just wait until my son goes to college and then you may have to knock when you come to see ME! hehehe

    Word must be getting around – we’ve had several of those impromptu visits here this week, too! No telling what they will find when they drop in here…

    LOL I understand Suzanne! Every morning I head out around 6 just wearing my t-shirt nighty to go let the chickens and geese out and check the cats food in the barn. If anyone showed up unannounced there’s no way I could get back to the house unnoticed! Don’t you just love living in the country …:-) (I’d like to have seen the look on the face of those two meter readers!!!) Have a wonderful Saturday….Chic :hungry2:

    Reminds me of the old joke, “How do you make the doorbell ring? Climb into the bathtub.”

    Cousin Sheryl has it right. I wear a thin cotton sundress in the summer on those really hot days and that is enough to cover me up without being too revealing. Just be careful if it’s windy!

    Well it isn’t like you are going to shower and do your hair BEFORE you go out to shovel! LOL

    Last week, I had a headache and little N was supposed to go out and water the chickens. Easy chore, Right? Well George, the rooster got out and he started screaming bloody murder. I had just laid down to rest after my shower, so I had just bra and panties on. I ran outside with Hubby’s winter jacket that was hanging by the door. :bugeyed: LOL. Maybe I should leave it there for just such a moment!

    I’m guessing meter readers have seen MUCH scarier things, and that seeing your T-shirt and barn boots are a total relief all things considered! I also bet they are very good at pretending not to see anything odd at all in people’s yards.

    If I had a nickel for every time the UPS man has busted me in my nightgown, sans bra… :no:

    LOL! That is so funny! I can often be found outside in next to nothing. I love the freedom, the sun on my skin and the breeze in the heat! I like the short sundress idea. I might look for a few of those. I often go to the road to put out the trash or collect the mail in my nightie with small robe.

    Until recently I use to dress between the bedroom bathroom and the family room and sometimes the meter reader would come when I was finishing up my dressing while in the family room. Naturally the dogs never barked when he would drive in the yard and thus warn me to be in the bedroom with the blinds drawn

    Suzanne, there is only one thing wrong with your attire. You have the wrong boots on. You need the “tall women’s printed rain/garden boots” from Slogger Boots ( an online store). They would just complete the outfit.

    Some of your readers are ornery. Some of your readers might show up just to see you in your shirt and boots (and nothing else). Some of your readers might take photos and post them on the internet. I’m just saying, is all.

    Ha! Been there, done that (but it was only one meter reader). I usually do morning feed barefoot and in just a t-shirt. It’s especially funny when the visitor catches me running like crazy for the house and more clothes. Ah… good times!

    I have the same boots. I think they look smashing on you. I was working at home one day, as God made me, and one of the plumbers I work with showed up to fix my shower. He came to the back door and got an eye full. I wonder if that’s why he quit a few weeks later. Poor guy probably went blind!!!

    If too many meter readers start showing up, you know the word got out. Enjoy and smile.

    ha! at least you were wearing something. I once got caught nude sun bathing by some guy driving onto my farm in some huge combine. and I lived a mile off the main road with no neighbors nearby. he got an earful. and I had to sit up and put on some clothes before I could even do THAT. a t-shirt and chore boots are enough cover :yes: :yes: :airkiss:

    I have the garden muck boots that I use this time of year and of course shorts and t shirt. You should see me when I cut grass! Love the tshirts with the sleeves cut out and new v neck put in too.

    Hahahaha! One of the few perks (besides the fact that when you clean it STAYS clean) of not having any kids at home.
    And I’m sitting here in my t-shirt and ……

    My daughter and her new husband have learned to knock before using the key. heheehee

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
