We went to the Iron Range yesterday; Ruth came with us.
Services were at Julia's. Next to the Elbow Creek Ranch
and Elizabeth was already there. Took pictures of Tristan,
flowers and horses. Took some meat. Next to Heather &
Shawn's for supper. Jen had encouraged her to enlarge her
flower bed which she had done. She isn't making the same
mistake I made the first time and planting too close together.
Had told Jan Takala when the milking parlor was done that
I'd like to see it sometime. She had said anytime. Yesterday
was the day. We were lucky in that Jan was giving hay to
calves in the "old barn" and she gave us a tour of the new.
Some cows were leaving through doors and through
other doors cows were coming in to be milked. They looked
content, chewing their cud. We watched the washing,
drying and putting on of milkers. They milk over 100 cows
but can't remember exactly. Will have more details in the
Newsletter, perhaps even the number. Fun day. dk
