Once upon a time...
but that is really not quite the start of this story, yet it is.
It is a story of this farm & what had been.
A hardworking dairy farm - before.
A hardworking farm family - then.

Starting & ending their day at the barn.

Today the memories remain in the stories that they share when they visit.
If you listen just so, tilt your head & squinch your eyes
-- you might just be able to picture 24 cows lined up for milking. 
The stanchions in the barn still stand ready.

And this little shelf awaits in the laundry room, just inside the door.
Facing the barn -- a tribute.

To hardworking farm families - thank you.

June is indeed  Dairy Month.

It still feels rather odd to sit on our deck and hear "moo" from the next farm. Odder still to look out a window and see a cow in the distant field.

Ah - life in the country.
