this is going to happen. the check has been written. nick has met her and loved her. she arrives either tomorrow or easter sunday. this is her milk. and it is delicious. we must spend, happily, nick's birthday morning preparing the barn and the barnyard crew for her arrival. cheese, yogurt, icecream, and butter are all nearly within my reach. unless the check receivers are really just swindlers....but i don't think they are. i think we may actually welcome our cow this very weekend.
