Life with a bunch of comedians

There is not a day that goes by that I see something out in the barnyard to make me laugh. It's like being surrounded by a travelling stand-up...well, somewhat crippled comedy troupe.

Even if I am deep in thought, or doing mundane tasks in the studio or farm, I get a jolt each day just by looking around-how grateful I am to have this relationship in my life-with this farm and all that entails. Life is going by so fast, faster than it seems it did in my twenties, thirties or even forties. My mother used to say,

"Once its Labor Day the year is over."

I always found that pretty pessimistic, but like many things mothers say, she was right.

I hope you have someone or something in your daily life that can bring you laughter. Feel free to share who that might be....

I have to run-I just saw a piglet run by with his little block head stuck in feed container!
