You touched on my all time pet peeve with this thread! I hate being told I can't do something because I'm a girl, especially if it's coming from a man. I get funny looks every time I go to the farm store. I'm usually with a pull cart in each hand stacked as high I could get them with shavings, feed, etc. I have a great hubby that always helps with major projects around the farm, but you can bet your butt that I'm right along side building fence, baling hay, driving the tractor & working my own arenas, etc.
I had a good old boy moment a couple weeks ago at the bank. This older man (whose wife was riding in the back seat like Miss Daisy btw) gets out of his car and says to me "What on earth is a girl doing driving a big diesel pickup truck like that? Does your husband know you are driving his truck?" Oh man was I floored, I said "Nope, he doesn't know because it's MY truck that pulls MY horse trailer with MY horses in it. Does your wife know you are driving her grandma car???" He then proceeded to tell me that my mouth was as loud as my truck, funny how he felt when I flipped the script on him!
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
