Country Humor & Mostly True Stories from the Farm
You know you are a farmer when:
• Your daughter, working part-time at McDonald’s, makes twice as much money as you do.
• You drive a $275,000 tractor and a $500 car.
• You would love to see an animal rights activist’s Chihuahua eaten by a coyote.
• You look forward to retirement because your income will go up.
As a farmer since 1965, author Marvin Jensen gets it. He gets the financial and familial hardships that come with being a commercial farmer, which may or may
not have contributed to his self-proclaimed eccentricity—although his wife prefers
the term “mentally deranged.” From livestock and crop farming, to local lore, to
even climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, Jensen recalls his farming and life experiences with utter candor and derisive humor.
The Farmer’s Bathroom Book is perfect for those with short attention spans, to be enjoyed while working on other, more important things.
The purpose of the "Farmer's Bathroom Book" is to record the true life experiences of a commercial farmer and write about these experiences in a manner that doesn't take life too seriously. Some local folklore is also included that may not be totally real, but was told to me as real. I am gullible. The stories are to be read in short time periods as farmers, and their families, do not have time for lengthly novels because of their busy work schedule. Readers are encouraged to multitask with other more important activities while enjoying this book.
