One After Another

And the super-duper days just keep coming.  Yesterday was downtime after all the hoopla and gaiety of the day before.  Farm life goes on regardless of the occasion, and Larry and Tay had to leave while I was milking goats.  A beep-beep goodbye and they were on their way.  Pete and Jake had volunteered to take on chores, but I wasn't about to miss an opportunity to just spend time with my boys.  Jake will be going to Air Force boot camp (I guess the PC term is basic training, but I'm old-school) in a few weeks and it will be a long while before I see him again, and the illusive Pete lives such a long way away, so we relaxed, talked, and watched a movie or two. Jake is Pete's only chick and it will leave a big hole when he leaves.  Cellphones and internet will be a blessing, faster and easier now than when it was waiting for snail mail when Pete and Dave were in the service.

Cam came by in the afternoon and joined us for dinner.  I had some trepidation when putting zucchini pie and mushroom crostini down for the boys (vegetables aren't really their thing) so caramelized some kielbasa for them, too.  Surprisingly, the veggie dishes were well received.

The guys will be leaving early today to miss traffic in Stockton and the Los Angeles area on their long trip home, it's burning daylight, the computer picked this morning to go funky, and I've got stuff to do before they get up.  It was another good day.

I am so, so happy for you that the last 2 to leave are the two that you see the least frequently. I'm glad that Pete was able to come up and bring his Wild Blue Yonder "Chick!" Makes me smile for sure!!
