Renny, I'm Ginnie's sister, the one with the farm. I love your post, and now I'll check out the rest of your blog. I think everyone has farms somewhere in their soul, so when they visit, there is a connection.

It is so interesting to see this farm post today, Renny, because tomorrow we're flying to Michigan for a Farm Day at my sister's house. They don't have all the animals but when they bought the farm 3 years ago, they got all the barns and sheds and fun things you think of when you go to the farm. I can hardly wait :) You whetted my appetite.
