and it has been a busy week for us as we are still camping. September 11 is a bitter sweet day as we commemorate all those who died on that dreadful day..........
but still celebrate Bruce's birthday! Here he is with his new birthday hat checking email!
The emblem on the hat is from the SAC Elite Guard in the Air Force of which he was a member....back in the good old days.
Saturday after we went to the Apple Fest at the Turner Farm here in Buena Vista, my friend Jeannie and I went to a goat farm down the road from where we are camping for a tour. Their website is www.jumpingoodgoats.com. Here are some of the kids.
Here is Gus getting some of the gals ready for milking. Man, those little things have great suction!
After everyone else left, I asked why we hadn't gotten a chance to milk by hand...so Dan took Jeannie and I back to give it a try. It isn't easy but once I got the hang of it, I got about 1/4 cup into the bucket! The gal was getting a little impatient with me!
And here is my blue ribbon! We really enjoyed the tour and left with a few varieties of goat cheese. The business only started in March and are already sending cheeses overseas!!!
We will be heading home on Tuesday but it has been a great camping trip. We do hope to get up to Cottonwood Lake for a little fishing before we head back.
A couple of you have asked about that picture resizing site and here it is--it is really easy to use:
