Mornings on the farm
are welcomed exuberantly by the animals.
They like to eat.
There's something about the smell of a barn
that has always appealed to me.
I think it appeals to the kids, too.
It's the smell of the fresh hay,
the barn swallows chirping and fluttering about;...
watching an animal enjoy his feed is somehow cathartic.
Crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch, crunch...
steady, calm, patient.
Where does that saying come from,
"You eat like a cow."
I like the way cows eat.
Yes, I am talking about you
and I do enjoy watching you eat.
Does that surprise you?
This guy on the other hand,
in his stench and sloppering hoggishness...
I didn't realize you were listening.
There is something rather handsome about a pig, though,
It's obvious that he thinks so.
Old faithful is never far away.
The farmer is getting ready to go pick up three more calves.
The girls are going with him;
Violet was excited and found it hard to sleep last night
knowing she was going.
Lillie just said,
"I'm going. Me, too."
Be careful with all that precious cargo.
I'll stay back and clean up the breakfast dishes.
Happy Saturday to you!
