~ A Rancher’s Wife…

She’s up in the morning
two hours before dawn
has done most of her chores
before the lights come on

Already milked the cows
and gathered up the eggs
even put liniment
on the horse’s sore legs

Bacon and eggs are cooked
the biscuits are baked brown
the gravy has been stirred
and the plates laid down

Once the pans are empty
the last bread’s been buttered
the men tack their horses
while she clears the clutter

Now a fifty mile drive
just to get to the store
to pick up the supplies
they have been waiting for

Time to fry the chicken
and put beef in the beans
cause stomachs on the ranch
are never full it seems

After serving the meal
and cleaning up the mess
she’ll ride out to the range
and work beside the rest

She has to be able
to ride fence, rope and brand
just as good as any
of those other hired hands

When the day is over
tired and hungry as hell
the men wash up and get
set for the supper bell

She’ll be in the kitchen
cooking vittles again
Cause work for a ranch wife
never comes to an end

Dumb Joke – The DNA Test…

After 3 years, a wife starts to think that their child doesn’t look like any of them, so she decides to have a DNA test done.
She gets the results back and finds out that the child is actually from completely different parents.
She tells her husband, “Honey, I have something very serious to tell you.”
“What’s wrong,” he asks?
“Well according to these DNA test results, Peter is not our child.”
“Well sure,” he said. “Don’t you remember? When we were leaving the hospital, we noticed that our baby had a wet diaper and you told me to go change the baby.”
