I have a pair of jeans that I’ve worn for lawn mowing all spring so far as well as for planting trees. They’re pretty much solid mud from the cuff to the knee. Right now they’re hanging on the line in the harshest thunderstorm I’ve seen in many a month. The hope is that some of the mud will rinse out in the rain and that the jeans might be clean enough to be washed by morning.

built up so strong, built when i was young
