milking maid



The exhibits open very early and I arrived sometime after 7:30 to find Elizabeth milking her goat. Some of the goats were being milked by automatic electrified milking machines, but this had such a nice feel to it, the milk maid keeping a mesmerizing rhythm. You will notice that she's wearing an earpiece which allows her to hold a phone conversation with a friend as she works.

I handed her my card before I left, so perhaps she'll check out the website and see the picture of her at work.

The ever present cell phone. A sign of the times I guess. I love the expression on the goat's face in "curiosity". He looks smug and extremely pleased with himself or herself.

As always, I love the visits to the country that you have to offer.

I LOVE the earpiece. Our kids are so plugged in ... all across the country. The fair photos are a great picture of America.
