The Farmer Takes A Vacation

Even farmers get to take a vacation every once in a while. Sometimes we're hard to motivate to leave because we want to keep caring for our cows and getting chores done. We need motivation.

Of course there's also motivation to stay home, too. 

The second photo was taken in Atlanta. Perhaps I could get Bad Company, or better yet, Allison Krasuss, to sing with me.

Oh, Atlanta, your traffic's stalling
I've been staring at taillights all day
I'm starting to worry
I won't get out 'til next Thursday
I'm stuck on the interstate in Georgia

Time spent at the beach was fun and a nice break from farm work. In the middle of it all we also celebrated a birthday with a pinata at the party.  We had a great time watching the kids trying to break the candy free. Of course it did occur to me that we were cheering the kids on as they attacked an animal with a stick. I'm sure that's not PETA approved, nor is it something that happens on our dairy. Maybe I should've remembered the whole what-happens-on-vacation-stays-on-vacation thing.

The cows and the family managed without me for a few days, but when it was time to come home I was ready. Besides who needs the beach when you can look at this all day.
