#SOLC20 – Day 13 – Brown Swiss, One More Time

We went to the Brown Swiss Banquet, one more time. We have no animals and our daughters have aged out the whole showing thing. So we went tonight, thus my really late post. After the banquet, we went over to... Continue Reading →

Thank you! A State Fair wrap-up #SOL19

Last Saturday, we finished what may be our last Iowa State Fair experience. There was tension between the groups we'd stalled with for the last three years. My daughter was a cranky about many things. My wife was half a... Continue Reading →

My State Fair #sol19

It's 10:15 CST, and this is the view from where I'm sleeping: Yup, it's State Fair time! As my wife is in Italy, my job of "show dad" has expanded to that of "show parent". U made cookies. I made... Continue Reading →

The Power of the Big Brown Cow #SOL18

I'm biased. I love the Big Brown Cow, Brown Swiss. I love the gentle temperament and the fact they allow us to lead them. We've never felt scared working with our animals, yet, if they don't want to go, they... Continue Reading →

“I can’t always be positive, but I can have faith.” #SOL18

I sat down a number of times yesterday and just drew a blank on what to write for my Slice of Life Tuesday blog. I'm back to "this is simplistic" compared to other blogs I've read lately. The words aren't... Continue Reading →

Our State Fair….#SOL18

....if I hear that iconic song from State Fair, I might just vomit! 😀 However, I think we'll talk about the state fair, if you don't mind. We really did think this was our last fair. My wife: not a fan of... Continue Reading →
