Seven Sisters do Public Relations classes with... Llamas?!?

Today's post puzzled me- is 4H itself a fundy cult?

What on earth are you doing with a llama at charity events for hospitals that requires you to do PR (WITH the llama)!?!

I was really hoping the whole post was just satire, but I guess not.

I grew up doing 4-H. It's more of a rural thing. Kids do projects ranging from photography to livestock. It's divided up by county and you try to get a blue ribbon for your project. If you do a great job you get a purple ribbon and get to move on to the state wide competition. 4-H isn't a fundy cult but full of wholesome clean fun which would attract fundy types. I never dressed up my animals in 4-H ;)

Ask me about my State Fair Grand Champion canned peaches! That's how bored I was as a fundy child. Dressing up llamas would have been a hoot in comparison.

I did 4-H as well. I learned knitting and folk dancing. There were many other options as well but that's what I focused on. I also did an interpretive dance to Prince's Little Red Corvette with a friend. I'm very, very glad that videotaping performances was not as common. There is no record of that performance.

I was in both the homemaking 4-H clubs (cooking, camping - no sewing for me) and the beef calf club. You would exhibit at your local county fair and then go on to a provincial one if you wanted. I did not dress my calf up, but it was the 80's so there was a lot of teasing and spray glueing of the tail switch - it washed out with oil... :?

I helped run a 4-H group for homeschoolers when we were in that scene. We actually started our own club and made sure it conflicted with the schedules of everyone but a small group of homeschooling moms I was friends with. We did cooking, folk dance, a few other things. I was in charge of the cooking one so that is the only one I am really familiar with. The program itself is not fundie, but we were sure that some fundies would come and crash so we took measures against it.

This should be a bumpersticker.

Here's the punchline... we weren't even allowed to be in a 4H group. My dad didn't want us mixing with the other kids, so we just formed our own group which consisted of my sister and me. Good times!

Those girls have the same sense of humor as Rebecca Eleventy and the Maxwells. There is some story in there about a sticker that is just not very funny. And a pic of one of the girls with a chip on her shoulder. Jokes ensue. I guess it might be nice though to be so easily entertained! Maybe that's a bonus of being so sheltered.

It strikes me as I'm reading this that the older girls, in most families, would not be able to spend a week, day in and day out, at the 4H fair. They'd have to work. Which honestly, would seem to make so much more sense.

Am I the only one who thought of Grandma Dynamite & Tina upon seeing this topic?

Just me, then?

My cousins kids both took steers to the state fair and ribboned. They are the 3rd generation of farmers in our family.

When I was at the MN State Fair we saw the kids exhibiting 1 year old bulls. Anti frizz sprays, Garnier products, those bulls looked pretty darn spiffy.

That's what I miss about the midwest, going to the fair and and walking the barns. Still got some farm blood in me.

My kids did Cloverbuds(the youngest group) which like Em we formed for a group of homeschool friends. It was really cute, we hatched baby chicks in inubators(my batch never worked of course, but most peoples did),worked the petting zoo at the big fair, stuff like that. My youngest won $5 for his animal picture and he thought that was awesome.

My 2 younger kids have worked the petting zoo the past few years as their bff's are still in the horse group. My friend is about to quit, she said it is becoming all about fund raising and working on the books they turn in than actual horses.

Most of the groups here are fundie lite and they do not want "others" infiltrating. I called 2 years ago about the sharpshooter group for my oldest son and the woman obviously did not want us coming. My son was on a shooting team for 2 years, its not like he didn;t know what he was doing.

My sisters and I did 4H. It was fun but not fundy. I learned all sorts of useful skills and in fact still use the bread recipes I got from one club.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.

      A modern day love story: Guy reaches out to you, you think he's cute so you start talking to him, give him your number. Guy then messages if you're free, you reply yes, guy never responds again. Love that. 👌
