Life on the farm with the Man…and our critters…

About me

Welcome to my humble attempt at starting a blog.  I’m not sure where it will lead, what it will accomplish, or how many people may actually find it interesting enough to keep returning.  Either way, it will be an experimental adventure for me, and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts as they come along.  Who am I, you ask? The long story can either be complicated, or rather boring.  The shorter version is I am just another man with hopes and dreams, ups and downs, and victories and failures.  The fun part is I get to share all of that with you.

And the Man?  You will get to know him quite well, I think…

I also enjoy dabbling in photography, and one of my dreams is to have my own show at an art gallery.  Hopefully, you will enjoy the photographs that I post on this site, but please do not reuse without my permission!

Feel free to say hi on Facebook!  (Rick Dawes)

    I feel that this would be a good point to insert a few disclaimers that protect me from misrepresentation or portrayal in any way in what might be considered a negative light (since you are welcoming suggestions). Nothing fancy mind you…something tasteful yet subtly positive…I would be happy to help pick out a suitable background and some music…

    I think your blog is starting to evlove itsself. You are such a thoughtful writer. You pull the reader into your own world. I wish you would think about writing a book. Maybe delve deeper into who you are an how you arrived where you are today to help others understand how life can change and evolve…. no pressure though! love you both!

    Rick, I love your blog! Love to hear about you & the “Man” and your farm animals. You are an awesome writer (just in case noone has mentioned it yet). Pictures are beautiful! Glad to see you are living your dreams and to hell with what everyone else thinks. I read all of it…you kept me intrigued. Very, very nice work 🙂
