Your roots are in the country when:
You save egg cartons for the neighbors.
You burn trash in a barrel.
You raise the red flag to mail a letter.
You don't have to mow when the neighbors do.
You have a barn yard.
Your sheep eat the grass.
You spread manure.
You get zoomed by a plane and it is a crop duster.
Your dog isn't on a chain or leash.
You don't pick up after your dog.
You wear boots after it rains.
You need a mud room.
Dust floats in your windows.
You rake rocks out of the grass in the spring.
You have a rain gauge.
Your kids experience life on a farm.
You thank God for every day in the country.
