Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreaming

16 Jul

A bonus joke for you, from Will & Guy:

Bob is walking down a country road when he spots Farmer Harris standing in the middle of a huge field of corn doing absolutely nothing.  Bob, curious to find out what’s happening, walks all the way out to the farmer and asks him, “Excuse me, Farmer Harris, could you tell me what you are you doing?”

“I’m trying to win a Nobel Prize,” the farmer replies.

“A Nobel Prize?” enquires Bob, puzzled. “How?”

“Well, I heard they give the Nobel Prize to people who are out standing in their field.”


Talking of farmers and their fields, some women dream of being with a man like the farmer who planted a private field in the shape of a heart, to honour his dead wife (read the story here):

Heart field


I dream of one day having a tidy house.  Look at the mess the Hub left recently, for me to find and clear up:

    With mess like that Tilly, you should be rushing to make a lovely bag to put it in! Did enjoy the farmer’s quest for the Nobel Prize:)

    You are definitely an expert at sweet and sour – ha!

    This is the most beautiful mess I’ve ever seen 🙂 I wouldn’t mind finding that in my kitchen, instead of the dirty coffee cups 😀

    That is no mess: that is a love poem.

    tissue paper blue hearts like giant wedding confetti – that man would plant a forest for you

    That’s a pretty nice mess. I saw that photo of the trees on the TV news. Seems no one knew about it until recently when someone saw it from the air. What a beautiful tribute.

    Your Hub is a keeper. I can just imagine the gleam in his eye as he was cutting up his heart creations to surprise you. Men do have the quirky habit of surprising us so sweetly into forgetting and overlooking so many things. Lol

    And your not even dead yet – hahaha – romance is in the air 🙂

    How sweet he is — such a love!

    Your hubby is a gem! What pretty blue hearts!

    Nice post. Perhaps you should have titled it,”Men trying to win women’s hearts.” In the case of the farmer, its a little late.


  13. robincoyle July 16, 2012 at 18:54 #

    What sweet tributes. The forest and your blue hearts. Ahhhhhhhhh.


  14. slpmartin July 16, 2012 at 21:18 #

    What a sweet man you have there. 🙂


  15. IsobelandCat July 16, 2012 at 21:21 #

    Ah, sweet husband. I had a valentine’s card once full of tissue paper hearts. I tried to open it discreetly…


  16. kateshrewsday July 16, 2012 at 21:45 #

    I’d have given that Farmer the prize 🙂 You do have a lovely hub, Tilly.


  17. katharinetrauger July 17, 2012 at 07:22 #

    Men! Sometimes they can be so sweet, it’s hard to remember what we were angry about . . .


  18. bluebee July 17, 2012 at 13:17 #

    The Hub’s got it right – at least you’re still alive to enjoy the utterly romantic gesture, *sigh*
    Did you count them? – fifty hearts of blue beats Fifty Shades of Grey every time, in my book 😉


  19. Three Well Beings July 17, 2012 at 17:14 #

    Ah! That’s a very special gift…I’m afraid that on too many occasions my lack of tidiness would make it hard for me to see them! 🙂 How nice to find surprises now and again! Debra


  20. Hattie July 17, 2012 at 20:13 #

    Out standing in my field today!


  21. evilnymphstuff July 19, 2012 at 16:51 #

    LOL I love the joke!
    Aww this photo is so lovely!


  22. Perfecting Motherhood July 21, 2012 at 03:07 #

    If your husband had a large property, I bet he’d create a big field in the shape of a heart for you too. But for now, the paper hearts will have to do and they’re very cute.

    Awww! That’s so sweet!
