|Liam as Mr Drysdale, ready to defend Homeland Farm|
Which gave me an idea for tonight's blog. I am thinking us folks at Homeland Farm need a reality show. We just need to decide what it is going to be about, and then we will start filming A&E channels newest hit show. I think the storyline will be a bunch of shows all rolled into one. Here is what I've got so far....
The intro has to be catchy, of course..to lure the viewers in. Now on the show called "Billy the Exterminator", he and his entire family are making a ton of money chasing varmints. I figure since I have a good background in varmint control, that's a natural theme for us to go with. The "exterminator" show starts out with the entire family, all dressed in black and wearing lots of leather, and spikes and sunglasses being named in the introduction.
They remind me of "Dog The Bounty Hunter" and his crew, except they chase bats and bees and possums, and not bail jumpers. I am not sure I can see Cliffy as "Dog", as he doesn't have the long flowing mullet, and I can't really be Beth, his wife, because I don't have her...umm...well, if you know Beth, you know what I am talking about. So, dressing like Dog the Bounty Hunter, or Billy the Exterminator wouldn't really be us.

Now, we need a show title, and theme. I have seen TV shows by the name of "Swamp People", "Moonshiners", "Bayou Billionaires", and a new upcoming show, "Duck Call Dynasty." Oh yea, these are all real shows. So, we could go with "Farm People"..nawww. "Farm Folks"? Maybe. We don't make moonshine, but do make homemade rootbeer. So maybe "Rootbeerers?" Nope. Maybe "Rootbeer Rebels?" No..too southern. "Yankee Brewers?" Maybe.
We certainly aren't billionaires, so lets see. "Bridgton Broke folks?" True..but too wordy. "Farmland Overdrawers?" True again, but too hard to say. Hmmm, onward. How about "Crow Call Dynasty"? or maybe "Hog calling Homelanders?" Wow. So many choices. I think I will go with "Homeland Farm Follies". That will work.
A theme song is needed..I think it could go something like this..(I, of course, will sing it..)
GREEN ACRES..sung to the tune of, well, Green Acres...
my part - Homeland Farm is the place to be,
working with Cliffy is the life for me
Jobs spreading out both far and wide,
Keep Millinocket just give me that countryside.
Cliffys part- Key West is where I'd rather stay,
I get allergic smelling hay,
I just adore a water view,
Darling I love you,
but give me something fun to do
Me- You are my Honey!
Cliffy- Goodbye all my money!
Green Acres we are there!
Great..so we have our theme song. Now, what will our show be about. I think that is by far the easiest part. It will feature lots of animals, chaos and laughs. I will be dressed in various granny night gowns and camo. Cliffy will be sporting the latest in Carhartt and plaid. I suspect there will be shooting, four wheeling, animal chasing, and cooking. Oh yeah, with a lineup like that, we would have hit on our hands. I guess I should start practicing my award show speech.." I'd like to thank the 2 blog readers in the Netherlands that gave me my start....."
