“These are farm eggs. See how big they are. Daisy came by with eggs today and handed them to me to give to my friend Rebecca. “No one wants them because they’re yellow in the middle. People are used to the pale yokes. Those pale ones have chemicals added to the feed they give to the chickens. These are from chickens that eat grass and whole grain and corn. That’s it.”
“Nope, I have to feed them to the dogs so I asked Becky if she would like to have them. I had to bring them in this carton that is too small for them. They shrank the cartons. They call this cartoon large. It used to be the medium size but they shrank it because the eggs are smaller. They’re cheating us This is what truly big eggs look like and they’re yellow in the middle but no one wants farm eggs.”
“Well, I do because they’re more nutritious. Thank you much!”
We chatted about other things on her farm including cutting up wood.
“I cut all my own wood but I’m going to have to give up the chainsaw now. I’m eighty and I just can’t do it anymore. I hate to do that because I love my chainsaw and cutting up wood.” Daisy lamented.
“You’re kidding me! You use a chainsaw at eighty?”
She gave me a big smile, “Yes and I mow all my own grass with a hand mower but I’m not going to be able to do my chainsaw anymore. I’m eighty now.” She shook her head.
“Well, I am very impressed you do all that at eighty!”
I’ll never have to worry about giving up running a chainsaw because I’ve never used one. LOL However, Daisy did model for me the benefits of staying active. She inspired me to stretch myself and as I grow older to continue to do all I can to keep myself physically fit.
I’m still shaking my head about running a chainsaw when your eighty.
What about you? You want to live a long life? Get active!
