My New BFF's S & T......

That sounds like a type of electric company doesn't it? Well, here is the story of how the Milk Man and I met our new BFF's.... Schnitzel and the Trout - they are like family already - wait they are better than family cuz, well, truth be told sometimes ya just don't like your family - but mostly you do....or not - or, well - never mind..... I can honestly say I had the most joyous time visiting with these 2 sweethearts, I cant remember when I have enjoyed company more. However, we don't get much company - but that should NOT reflect on how much fun we had with you two stinkers!!! My mom came over to wrangle the boys so we could have a few minutes of uninterrupted conversation with our new friends. My granny came over to supervise of course - in complete honesty, she came over to make sure I didn't break out the cha-cha heels and start dancing on the table....she's dependable like that. Big Son was tickled to death that The Trout wanted to look at his frozen trout - we caught it a few days before they got here. Milk Dud was very receptive to all the love he got - how many times have I said he's a lover not a fighter - and Lispy.... well, what does this tell you?





See, he's a very gracious host - he treated them just like family. He wanted to make them feel so comfortable that he even stripped to his undies and did his Water Welcome dance for them... I got great kids don't I? Big Son joined him of course and well, the picture perfect family fell apart right before the eyes of our guests... but they were gracious and didn't flinch..... I swore I saw them drinking on the way out of the driveway - I am sure their nerves were a complete frazzled mess..... glad they were not driving to Montana from here!!




Now to be serious - what a wonderful couple. I cant wait for their return trip and wish they could visit us weekly. Trout is great fella and Schnitzel - she is one of the sweetest woman I have ever met - truly!
This was take at our farm and that short German lady on the right is my mother in law - Betty. She is as much fun as she looks, if she couldn't laugh she choke to death. Schnitzel is next, then my hunk of burning love, I, I, I mean the Milk Man then the Trout... he's a keeper too! Ya know what I loved the most about his couple... I hope you guys don't mind me saying this out loud to the world but here it goes... They have been married for 40+ years and you can see that they are still VERY MUCH IN LOVE with one another. I hope that the Milk Man and I can be that way when we are at that stage of life. We miss you guys already and Milk Man said that on your way back from Montana - ya better stop back!!



NOW, before I close I have a couple of things I MUST show you. One of my favorite people sent me something that was made by another favorite person of mine..... isn't this gorgeous???


Karen from Fresh Fixins had this sent to me and Suzanne, the farmers wife made it and sent it. You guys are to much!! It is beautiful and I LOVE IT... so does the Milk Man - that apron and my red heels are now is favorite outfit for me.... did I just say that out loud.... sorry granny.... bleach your minds eye if you cant handle it...




AND - when S & T came she brought me these....







She made the dish towel and the cookbook is from her family - what thoughtful gifts. Milk Man was only disappointed that I couldn't wear the dish towel like I could the apron - then he said maybe I could just hold it up in front of me.... He's thoughtful like that...

Love to you all... Karen, an extra thank you to you. I don't think you realize how much your friendship means to me. When I have a downer day - something usually comes in the mail from you that makes it all better - for me and the boys.

Gotta run - Milk Man just called and needs help with cutting some brush along one of the fields.. and away we go!

Love yas, and squeeze them babies from their long-distance Auntie!

Willow Witch said...

They sound like a wonderful couple, never can have too many wonderful people in your life... Glad you had a great weekend...

Susan said...

Oh Heidi..bless your little heart! Such wonderful compliments but I don't think we are that deserving. I think the Norwegian, German and that other country backgrounds,(ha ha) make us very compatible. I also feel I already knew your family so well from reading your blog everyday. Enjoy all your boys...all 5 of them. They are so beautiful and well-mannered. I mean, when even Lispy came to shake our hands--we were very impressed. Love you!

Sadie said...

Aw! Such pretty things :) I especially love the apron. But I have a confession.. I have never owned an apron, lol... They are expensive so I just wear old T shirts when I cook. They work great but I am not a pleasent sight in the kitchen *hehe*

Karen is great! She stops by almost every blog I post, and is a great writer also :)

Heide said...

What wonderful presents. It sounds like you had a delightful visit. Sometimes people just "click" and the good thing about making friends on-line is that (if everyone has been up front) you know if you'll get along before you actually meet. What is growing behind Big Son in the picture with him and Lispy playing in the water?

Karen Deborah said...

BIG SON has a future in modeling! modeling how to be a good son and a great sport! Just how far away are you anyway?

Farmchick said...
