my "bottom line" is exactly why I'll keep to my Wranglers  ; ))

All joking aside, when customers show up at all hours (to see horses,
inquire about landscaping or when the stand will open, etc) what I'm wearing
is a reflection of the farm (which right now, judging by all the rain coats
on the back porch, means we're an ark ; )).  I can't work in clothes I
wouldn't wear out in public or something that doesn't make the same high
quality statement I expect of every product that leaves this farm.  Besides,
I just plain feel better about myself.  Those $10 knee pads become a better
and better value when viewed in that light.

As for wearing shorts, I'm still not used to not having fire ants here in
the mountains or being able to go barefoot.
