I love the unexpected. See it?

On this very rare weekend away from the farm (cousins and kids left in charge) to drive around in the gorgeous mountains, I was exposed to network TV, high speed internet, and restaurants!! I was baffled and dumbfounded by network TV since I have no idea what shows are what anymore. Restaurant food made me miss my own cooking. (Though the Cheat River Inn Restaurant is lovely–if you’re in the area, I recommend it!) And high speed internet……made me want to write my congressman. (Why oh why can’t we get anything but unreliable, slow satellite “high-speed” in the country?!)
My favorite quote from this weekend: Princess spent the first night with a friend then came back over to the farm on Saturday. On the phone before she came over to the farm, she said, “I’ll take care of the animals. I guess Clover needs a milkin’.” What a farm girl! She was ready to charge back to the farm and catch Clover up on her milking! (She has never milked Clover on her own before, without me being there.) Apparently, she didn’t get my memo that we were done milking for the time being, but despite Clover’s unrelenting, stubborn, ornery behavior, Princess was going to milk her! I almost hated to tell her no. But I like Princess and I didn’t want Clover to take her down for the count so I let her know that would not be necessary. Or even smart…..
So? So? Do you see the unexpected in the picture?
