    Morning everyone! If you're waking up and have time to sit down with others for a time then pull up a chair or pop a squat and join in on the conversations. There's hot coffee, iced coffee and hot water for tea (and hot chocolate) plus juice and fresh cold water and fresh cold good for you cow's milk.☕

    Been up since 3am. Always get up at this time...well, maybe sleep until 4am on the weekend. I love getting up early. It is my time. No one calling me on me. The world is a quiet, reflective place in the early morning hours. My rooster gets up shortly after me and starts announcing the new day. Good thing I don't have close neighbors. I read the latest news on the internet, check my forums, do some reading and have my coffee (usually two cups) and my breakfast (usually all natural peanut butter on wheat bread.) It's 5:30 now and just about time for me to go out to the warehouse and get some customer orders ready. Then, I'll make deliveries and stop at the grocery store to pick up the fixins' for home made pizza tonight. I have a 60 mile drive today to Bethlehem, PA and back to pick up an 1800 LB pallet of supplies for our business. Then I'll unload it and wonder why my back hurts tonight. Just finished reading Bill O'Reilly's Old School: Life in the Sane Lane. a light hearted look at Old School Folks vs. The Snowflakes. Enjoyable reading. Next book up...Killing Reagan. Have to get going now. Going to be hot today, possible thunder storms that will bring a cool front with it. Nice dropping by; hope others stop in for coffee. I'll leave the jar of PB and loaf of wheat bread if anyone wants some. Oh...I have about a dozen free pallets sitting at the top of the driveway in decent shape if anyone wants them. Just swing by....

    Thank you. I know you said you had to get going but now you've got me curious about what kind of business you have. Is it something I can look up online?

    Good morning :) Hot coffee sounds so good right now. Was up until 01:00am last night, but unlike Moon, I slept in this morning! Got a few minutes free to catch up with my favourite forum, before I get busy again. I may go for a walk first, to get some fresh air and clear my head.

    That's what I like to do too when I need to clear my head. Think I might join you on your walk even though I'm really not to do any serious walking- just down to the creek on my Uncle's property. He owns at least 30 acres plus 50 feet into the creek.

    Whew...ya'll all beat me outta the bed this morning. I woke up at 5'ish - as normal - but since the college is now closed on Fridays until August(!) I rolled back over and stayed prone until 7am. It felt great, but means I'm already late milking...but somehow I just don't care right now. It'll be ok since it's a weekend - I'll just milk later this evening than I usually do.

    I'm gonna sit here and enjoy my coffee and try to decide which task on my 'to do' list is more important...

    Happy Friday everybody!
