Play it, Jen

Every good movie has a piano player somewhere in the background--
sometimes seen, usually unseen.
Seldom really noticed.
The feeling, the very soul of a scene, is created by that person tinkering at the keys.
It has been said, "All the world's a stage."
Well then...Play it, Jen.

I'm a California Native transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks. I've learned how to chase cows in high heels and load hay faster than you can say "Coco Chanel." These are some of our pictures and stories of living in a land with breath-taking beauty and adventure around every bend.

You might be a city girl if...

You've never tried a chaw of Red Man.

You've never tipped a cow because they don't work in restaurants.

You won't bait your own hook because worms are "icky".

You do all of your gardening in barrels on the patio.

You get to park your car in the garage because your husband doesn't own ANY old tractors.

You've never gotten a jar of Bag Balm as a gift.

You don't like country ham.

You've never even heard of red-eye gravy.

You know how to make quiche, and your husband actually likes it.

You've never been to a tractor pull.

Your boyfriend took you to a tractor pull and you DIDN'T like it.

You think that wind mill in the cow pasture is there to keep the cows cool.

You like deer because they have pretty brown eyes.

You like cats better than coon dogs.

All of your cats live in the house.

All of your cats have names.

You think "long johns" come from the donut shop.

Your husband's lawn mower requires an extension cord.

You've never been on a hay ride.

When you hear the word "steamer" you think of the Titanic.

You've never eaten poke greens.

You think that mountain oysters are seafood from Colorado.

You have never been snipe hunting.

You think milk comes from plastic jugs.

You've never gone skinny-dipping in a creek.

The first time you ate barbecued ribs you asked how they got the food on those little sticks.

You can't find the flush lever in the outhouse!

You called the police when you found out your boyfriend is a coon hunter.

The tires on your boyfriend's car are all the same size.

You don't know the difference between a cow and a bull.

You think the only difference between a cow and a bull is the horns.

You've never planted flowers in an old tractor tire.

You don't know that caviar is really just fish eggs.

You think John Deere was one of the Mouseketeers.

You cried when you found out where hamburgers come from.
