The sun rose again this morning on the Knolltop, even though the boss is no where to be found. Yep, Bobby's gone, I practically had to shove him out the door, but he left at 4:30 am yesterday morning and headed to meet his best friend, Bobby Binger, for breakfast. He called mid morning to check on us...he must have been having a good time, otherwise he would've called much earlier to make sure we were getting along without him.
After breakfast and visiting some farms near Clyde, Ohio, he went to Brookview to visit with Eric Havens and ended up spending the rest of the day with the Havens family. They had lunch and then just sat around and visited about old times.
This morning the report was that he was headed south to Delbert Yoder's farm. I know he'll have a good time rumbling around in Wayne County.
Meanwhile, back at the Knolltop, we're surviving without him. I've got the cows down to milking once a day so we don't have to do so many chores. It's a great program, it leaves so much more time for shopping, eating out, playing games and just laying around. I don't know why more dairy farmers don't do it this way!
Better go, we're headed to the spa where we are getting family massages, Sarah and I will get facials, pedicures and manicures while the boys get their hair cut and faces packed in mud. After that we will head for lunch out and then to an MSU men's basketball game where we get to sit in VIP seating, right behind the bench so I'm available to Tom for coaching tips. This dairy farming is the life!
14 more days until the launch....of Dairy Agenda Today!
