What a delightful

What a delightful conversation. As a fruit farmer up north from you and your guest this was of obvious interest. One thing Inga mentioned that I can relate to was a few years ago she sold her cows because she was getting lonely on the farm. In the last few years, I have found myself in employment situations that are quite solitary and don't often have company on the farm. It doesn't help that my favorite side hobby is to go out in the woods and make bike trails. I seldom even see people in the woods during hunting season; there's just too much room for the hunters. Someday I'll figure out a way to bring people to the farm or else get myself out into a more social lifestyle. I'm not too religious either but like the idea of invoking patron saints or angels.
