I've stirred apple butter off in a copper kettle in the yard and put pennies in the kettle to keep the apples from sticking.

I can remember my hard times in the early eighties. I was on my own and the first winter when I had started my own stone masonry business. The bank president called my father to tell him they were about to take my truck. The president and my father were close. My phone was shut off because I couldn’t afford to pay the bill. I came home one evening from laying a fireplace. My father was sitting on the porch of my house I was renting. He said son, “ are you in trouble?” I said no I’ll be ok. He said, “I went inside, your pantry is empty and your refrigerator is unplugged, Collins called and told me you missed your payment. Your phone is disconnected.” I took him on a tour. I was renting a house on a 1200 acre farm. I had 2-3 deer in the freezer. Don’t know how many squirrels, pigeons, and bass. 100lbs of tators in bins in the shed, 20lbs of onions. 50 mason jars of beans, 50 mason jars of Roma tomatoes. I thought I was living just fine. Used to hang my laundry in the family room to dry and humidify the house during the winter next to the wood stove. I really miss those days.

I would go out with my Dad with a John Deere tractor and hay bales on a wagon. He'd put the tractor in granny low at an idle while we'd bust bales apart and feed the cows while the tractor drove itself.
Once a year we'd go down to the meadow and burn a brushpile and have a weiner roast. Dad would get a 6 pack of Pepsi in bottles and that's how much pop we got in a year. There were 6 of us so it worked out just right.

Mom always made us go to church on Sunday until were smart enough to grab our fishing poles and take off on foot over the hill. By the time we got home she wasn't mad anymore. smile

Over the years I have raised and sold ginseng.
Raised bees for quite a few years.
As a boy I worked on my dad's mink farm feeding, vaccinating, and skinning mink.
Also worked for my dad who made a living seining minnows for many years.

I should add to this that those were some of the best years of my life.

pee off the porch or in gravel driveway - where I want whenever
can't keep clothes on my kids outside
turkeys, ducks, chickens, dogs and cats sleep on porch, around house, and on roof
cows and calves out in yard and on road
swim in front pond
drink water from well
my poop stays on my property
help my neighbors at no cost and they help me
know when someone who doesnt live close - drives by on our road
know how to use and have used a pig castrator
been elbow deep up some animals birthing orifices
know what putting up square bales is and the joy of it
know how to build and fix fence
know that a road killed deer will be cleaned up by my critters
coon fats add energy to laying hens in winter
have guns close to every door, loaded for predators
kids know how to utilize guns as a tool
know that God has saved me and blessed my family and I am eternally thankful for His blessings and understand others are not as fortunate but He loves them the same

It certainly is not country music that makes me country (at least any modern country music). Many have listed all the aspects of rural settings so I won't belabor on those. To me rural or country is living in a culture where one accepts the fact that many services common to more suburban and urban cultures are not available to me or there is a lengthy time lapse in receiving those. One learns to accept those facts and adjusts life accordingly. With fires many times buildings are totally lost. Severe injury or health issues are much more likely to be fatal and it is part of that culture. The good news for me is one lives within the realm of where things grow so logs can be cut, gardens grown, livestock raised and processed. Renewal comes physically, emotionally and mentally which is a very hopeful feeling.
