The author is unkown, but, USA Today reports that this Paul Harvey monologue was originally given to the Future Farmers of America (now FFA) convention in 1978. Harvey, who died in 2009, was a longtime radio favorite in the Midwest.
My mom, Rose, is visiting me for a week or so (she’s 90). Better put her to work: barnyard therapy! Don’t judge me… my two remaining kids (‘pet’ wethers) will be moving to their new home soon. In the meantime, I can still spoil them with a bottle!
I couldn’t get my mom to milk “our girls”. She said her mother (my Oma in Austria) always milked their goat, “Lisel” (for the sole purpose of feeding their pig).
Have a great weekend!
