Thanks! I Needed That!

This has not been a very easy week. I overslept on Monday and was almost late to a commercial delivery, then managed to screw up another commercial order - forgot the banana-mango yogurt!

Tuesday seemed like it was moving in slow motion - nothing readily identifiable was causing the slow down, but slow down it did. I didn't get back to the farm until almost 4pm - and I should've been back by 1pm. There were fewer stops than usual, too, as I've started to feel the effects of $3 a gallon gasoline. "Hmmm, do I want a quart of really good milk, or a gallon of gas? Lemme think about it - no gas, no work, no money, no milk anyway! I'll take the gas!"

Yesterday was par for the week: several customers were missing in action - not home to accept delivery or pay the bill. One really good customer (and very nice gal, by the way) forgot to leave a check for the second week running ... I hate to have to remind her, but I'm gonna have to sooner or later.

So I was a bit depressed when I sat down to check the blogroll last evening. I'm manually checking those blogs without RSS feeds, and one of them is the newest addition to the list: Dvalin Darkdale. The post that was at the top was simply titled Joy - and that's exactly what it is: a joy to read and ponder. It not only hits the nail on the head, it drives it right through the board with a single stroke. It's important enough to have caused me to save a text copy locally and print it out.

Go read Joy now. Bookmark it. If you're ever feeling overwhelmed by life's turmoils, read it again. Then you'll understand why I titled this post "Thanks! I Needed That!"

Thank you,


Notes: If you put a <mailto:> link in the URL field your address will not be mangled: this could be a bad idea as your email address could be easily harvested by bots designed for SPAM. The comments field should now format correctly for line feeds and carriage returns: when you hit the 'Enter' or 'Return' keys in your comment it should break to a new line. The text should wrap cleanly. Please let me know if it doesn't. No HTML tags will pass through - entering links seems to be the main cause of comment SPAM. Also, please be sure that Javascript is enabled in your browser before attempting to post a writeback. Sorry for any inconvenience, but this really helps cut down on the amount of comment SPAM I have to deal with.
