… you’re ready for the unexpected.
It was a really cold weekend but we bundled up and made the trip to Harrisburg to go to the 102nd annual farm show. Mostly I wanted to see the cute sheep and goats and decide which we are more inclined to add to the farm, I wanted information on tapping our two Maple trees so I can make Maple syrup, and I wanted some of the awesome “junk food” that comes with going to a place like that (sticky buns, sugar-coated & roasted nuts, bratwurst wrapped in pretzel dough, etc.).
I think we’ve decided on goats, I got some good information about tapping our trees, we saw the annual butter sculpture and I ate more junk food than I should have. So what’s the problem?
It’s what I didn’t expect to happen at the farm show that’s a problem. Yes, I knew they had vendors. Yes, I knew they have Farm Show specials. But I really didn’t expect to buy anything more some of that aforementioned junk food. But, we (actually he) bought something – and it’s big. In fact, it’s so big, it has to be delivered on a truck. Stay tuned.

I thought you had a goat. Are you creating a flock of goats?
You know, if you get a flock of sheep you could spin your own wool in your abundant spare time.
I never understood the point of making large sculptures out of food, like the butter sculpture exhibit. For some reason such things seem to be popular, so I guess it’s just me.
Maybe a small flock. Not sure what they do with that butter sculpture at the end of the show. I don’t think I’d want to eat it.
Oh no! The suspense is killing me! Inquiring minds want to know what you bought!!
All I’ll say is — it’s NOT the butter sculpture.
