More Fun from Women in Ag

Sometimes, in life, we find friendships in the most unique of people.  Long lasting relationships with Ladies who have very different backgrounds than ourselves.  Differences that we embrace learn and draw strength from.  In our case we have our husbands, who attended college together, to thank.  The connection our boys made during college introduced us and good fortune bonded us together.

Last week we attended the South Dakota Rural Women in Agriculture Conference together.

Yes, we have seen wild turkeys before, but were amazed at how tame the turkeys were.  We were really excited when the Lodge Manager handed us a stack of bread and prompted us to feed the turkeys.  None of the big boys came to eat out of our hand, but we were still easily entertained!

We stayed an extra night after the Conference.  We went out for appetizers at BaRLee’s Food and Drink and supper at The Ruby House.  We ran into some interesting conversations with a couple of Southern Belles sitting at neighboring tables.

Our main purpose for spending an extra night was to climb Harney Peak.  We drove and got within two miles of the trail starting point (Sylvan Lake) and had to turn around.  Between the snow and slick road we could not make it any further.  We tried and will try again when the weather is warmer.

It’s important to spend time with the girls.  Many issues get discussed, ideas shared and we make each other laugh.  Women understand each other on a level that men do not.  I think this is the way it’s supposed to be.  Girl time gives us a great reason to treat ourselves to spending time together.

Thank You Miss J and KJ for a wonderful time.

  1. Sounds like a great time! Goodness, I am terrified of turkeys… there’s my confession for the day. Any bird bigger than a chicken tends to send me running!

    The relationships we have with women are some of the most important. Our ancestors realized this and I think that is why there were quilting bees, barn dances and, most importantly, church. It was a time for the women to get together with each other! 🙂

      You are right, Candy, we need our time with the girls. As our small rural communities become fewer and our lives become busier this time is an easy thing to overlook. It’s important to maintain a strong support system.
