Eight in Blog Years....What a Trip
Every single year I miss the anniversary of this blog. It just never fails.... and 2013 was no exception. This all started on the sixth of August in 2005. I didn't know how to insert hyperlinks. I did not have a digital camera....thanks, Steve, for ever and ever. You are remembered every single day of Northview life.
It was dry that year, something we haven't seen much of recently. I knew a few of you, but mostly you were friends as yet unmet.
All three border collies were still with us, and Mike and Gael were still helping a little with the work.
Things have changed so much since then....I barely recognize myself or any of the participants.
The boss doesn't dance much any more, but he still gets around to get the work done.
Since then kids have grown, dogs have passed over the bridge, and new dogs stepped up to the bowl. Farming and indeed the world have changed immeasurably.
Lot of it has been scary, but meeting you all has been great. Thanks for reading along and keeping me company on this crazy ride through life on a dairy farm.
