Looking toward the future

I think I would like to work on a farm.

Okay, I’m not saying it would be easy.

I’m sure the hours are long and the work is exhausting.

But I really love animals and I like big open spaces.

Farm life is not for everyone, of course, but it is a dream of mine.

When I retire one day, the first thing I’m going to do is see if I have enough money for a little farm and ranch.

What would I do with it?

I would have chickens and henhouses and fresh eggs every day. Okay, sure, I would have to worry about foxes and coyotes but I would figure out a way to solve that problem.

I think I would like a little pond and stock it with fish and make sure there were plenty of trees around the pond so I could fish in the shade.

What else?

Of course I would have a couple of dogs, some goats, a few pigs, and maybe some horses.

I could grow my own food too, and I would also have a small vineyard to grow table grapes and wine grapes.

I think all of this sounds wonderful. Even more, I would have a little tractor to drive around the farm.

Maybe I am dreaming, but it’s all right to dream.

I would make sure I created a small business where I could sell the things I grew in my farm. I could open a shop and have the best time talking to people from all around the world.

Next I would get a website and sell my goods and I could have a webcam so you could see me on my farm.

It sounds like a really good plan, and now I have to figure out how to do it.

Dream, my friend, go and dream your future life and make it happen.
