GASP!! My husband doesn’t wear his wedding ring daily. In all fairness I don’t either. Should I be mad about this? No way. I actually don’t want him to wear his wedding ring. He only gets to wear it when we go out.
On the farm there are too many places that a person could get their fingers stuck. When Tim and I first got married I told him that I don’t want the phone call stating “Honey, bring a bag of ice, we need to bring my finger to the ER.” His first wedding ring was some expensive thing (more than mine with diamonds) made of some indestructible metal. I had visions of it getting caught on a piece of equipment and we would have to call the fire department to free him.
Well, his first ring is now in one of our fields. He forgot to take it off one day before he left home. He was vaccinating calves, put the ring in his pocket and it fell out without him noticing. We are sure it was scooped up with the compost and spread on the fields. If you find a silver ring with the engraving: TBZ and EJF 01-14-06, please return it to us. Tim’s second ring is a Walmart special.
We are always thinking about safety on our farm. Whether we are making sure the boys are always in a safe place or that we wear hearing protection around noisy equipment. We also make sure to handle our cattle in a calm fashion so as not to create an unsafe situation.
Safety is always on our minds. So if you see either of us without our wedding rings on, don’t be alarmed. We probably just forgot to put it on.
