7. I resolve to actually read herbicide labels, at least the parts that look important.

6. I will try to get one more year out of my road warrior pickup.

5. I will cut down the cedars in the pasture before it looks like a Christmas tree farm.

4. I will not base my corn hybrid decision on who has the coolest caps.

3. I will bale fescue before it’s dry as Rice Krispies.

2. I resolve to figure out what the heck all those buttons are for in the new tractor.

1. I will count to 10 when an unreachable bolt turns — and then I’ll cuss and throw the wrench anyway.
