There is the possibility that only people who come from farms will find this amusing.

I was having a drink with an old friend who was in town the other day. Today he's a successful cameraman/producer with awards coming out his ears, but he started out earning a crust as a farm hand and a fencer before picking up a camera. And every once and a while we get reminded of this.

We were sitting there, nattering away, when my phone rang.

Or, I should say, barked.

His eyes lit up. 'Is that your ringtone?'

'Yup.'

He held the phone closer, listened intently and then asked, 'Is it a Huntaway?'
More testament to the fact that you can take the bloke out of the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the bloke.

No, I'm not from a farm, but I find it amusing that the princess-in-pink who owns this blog would have a dog's bark as a ringtone at all.

I hope you switch it to heading dog mode in meetings?

Oh, missed you there, Tinman! You can take a girl out of the farm....

LOL! I'd love to get that ring tone for my land line. The phone has a horrible ring.

That's a great idea, Janie! Are there telephones that offer ringtones for landlines?
