The Billings Outpost

No playing in dirt

I’d like to refer to a few statements that Lauris Byxbe wrote in the July 26 issue of The Outpost. Lauris wrote that “Farmers and gardeners love playing in the dirt.”

The truth is that they WORK THE SOIL for their livelihood, for many long hours and sometimes in difficult and even dangerous situations.

I have never heard of a farmer playing in the dirt.

Children do that.
