Oh glory, if you had ever told me that I’d be sharing the cover of Modern Farmer with Mick Jagger, no, I don’t think I would’ve fathomed it.
Here’s the back story: A few years ago, Niels Windfeld Lund, who lives in Denmark and goes by the title, “Bibfessor“, discovered my blog when I’d written about my work uniform. He and I formed a friendship based on our shared appreciations of nature, farm life, and work ethics. Not to mention we both sport similar fashion sense.
This season, Modern Farmer decided to run an aricle on overalls in farm life and discovered Niels. Niels pointed them, Lori, my way. Lori called me up and we had a phone interview while I was cleaning my chicken coop.
I stood in the doorway of the coop with a very loud Almonzo (my Faverolle rooster) in the background, sketchy cell service, and coop-dust filling my sinuses.
Isn’t farm life so poetic?
Oh, it’s not such-a-much because I’m not quoted about how to accomplish world peace, which is something I’ve prayed about every single night since I was a little girl. And it doesn’t help burn victims, which is the other thing I’ve prayed about every single night since I was a little girl.
I will tell you that I spoke with Lori at length, and of course the conversation had to be edited to make room for my overall-wearing-colleagues’ interviews. However, I am glad that a hint to my work-ethic rant was included.
Dedicating this to my mom.
Enjoy my references to invisible tractors & the lasso of truth.
