Milking Shed

Yes. We are still alive, in case any of you were wondering. However, from the lack of comments, I'm beginning to question whether we have any readers. Our wireless router died, and I have heretofore been unable to pry the cord away from the other internet users in the family. :)

Since our milk cow (Daphne or Blackie or whatever you want to call her) is due to calve soon, Jacob has been anxious to build a shed for milking her. He and Dad began construction on Friday. Dad had to go to the Farmer's Market on Saturday, so some of Jacob's buddies came over to help him. They got as far as they could with the materials they had, then ran to Lowe's to get some more boards. They were done in no time at all. Great job, guys!


Gotta love the expression.

This one too

Thanks for the update...we thought you just might be up to a new project!

And you have 8 readers here. But just one that leaves the comments for all 8! ;-)

Many blessings,
The Flemings

You don't know me at all, but I check in on your blog regularly. I love to see what you guys are up to and dream about moving back to a farm some day. I love all the photos of your farm, animals and gardens. Also, I found that when I tracked visitors I got about one comment for every 40 visits, so my guess is you have quite a few silent readers, also.
