Reliable


Every milking but Saturday morning

All the calf feeding, help with the hay feeding, chores, and animal moving projects

A lot of the shopping

All the chickens,and the pea hen

Two dogs

Both ponies, even the one that belongs to someone else.

Every single day, plus an off farm job, plus taking care of the old fogies.

Thanks, Becky,

And Happy Birthday....we love you....

What a sweetheart! Mom, you sure did something right. Your young people are awesome . . they are the people that make this great country work. In the last part of this lecture . . Professor Kagan of Yale - discusses the early Greek farmers and the significance to the foundation of a democratic society.
Go to minute 50 to hear him movingly addressing his audience about the family farm and its passing from the American landscape.

I once thought that the description of being 'reliable' was a boring tern used by girls to describe someone they would go on a date with, but not the one they wanted to.

As I have gotten very much older, I have liked the description much more, since I have totally blocked what women say about me from my opinion of self worth. Still, I do see that Becky is much more than just reliable, but that is high praise in today's culture and evaluations of people that count on one.

Hope she has many many more wonderful birthdays and meets more reliable friendly folks.
