In yesterday's post I mentioned the lemonade stand by the young Kietzman entrepreneurs and I said they were Joel's daughters.....leaving out any mention of the one who gave birth to them, fed them, got up multiple times to feed them in the wee hours of the morning and who's body will never, ever be the same again after birthing three daughters (not that she looked bad, she's just a little thing who doesn't even look like she's had one kid much less three ...darn her!). Anyway, Melissa Kietzman was the wonderful, dedicated mom to these adorable little lemonade peddlers.
And I didn't mention who the customers were at the stand...boy I'm slipping! Donny Mayer and three Japanese interns who are working on neighboring dairy farms were bellied up to the beverage stand.
In fact, we toured Donny and Liz Mayer's place on our whirlwind Wisconsin tour. They have a nice herd of cows and it is so much fun to listen to Donny talk about cows. He has such a passion for the Holstein breed and much like my husband, he hasn't come across a pedigree yet that he can't remember!
Better get on with the day, the peaches aren't all done yet, they weren't all quite rip enough. So I think some peach jam is on the agenda for the day...along with a little writing, a trip to the extension office and the feed store and more detective work on some pictures I need.
