WWD: Why Buy The Cow?

Thank you so much for the lovely time we had touring your facility this weekend. Despite the cold, drizzly weather, we enjoyed the drive out, and the chance to see your facilities.

It was a great opportunity for the kids to see exactly where their milk comes from, and the samples were deeee-lish (banana, orange, strawberry, chocolate, and root beer milk - though I have to be honest and say I can't stand root beer, but everything else was nom-noms).
The cows were delightful, and the baby calves? Guh. So. So. Tute.
I would be remiss, however, if I did not take this opportunity to also apologize to you for my son Simon's behavior in the baby calf barn. It has come to my understanding that in the middle of a crowd of people and bovine, he took a moment to pull his weiner out and, well, RELIEVE himself.
I was outside with my daughter while my husband was in the barn with Simon and his brother. You can imagine we were both mortified.
It is my hope that no one was offended (or worse, hit by a rogue stream), and I can assure you this will not happen again should we visit.
Thank you again for your understanding and hospitality. Please pass on our apologies also to the lady cow and young calves who also had to witness this. I hope that they have not been affected by the urine in their stalls.

...and on a completely different note...

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for putting together this page on Facebook for, well, almost every frigging person who actually wanted Missoni for Target stuff to - you know - ACTUALLY WEAR, rather than hoard and list on eBay at ri-frigging-diculous mark-ups. As I said last week, I was able to score a couple of items that I wanted (the robe above), but when I got home with the throw I purchased, I decided I wanted it in another color. Too late, of course.  Thank the hebbins I came across this page on Facebook where people could trade items at little to no cost. Brilliant.

This weekend, I put up a post that I wanted to swap the throw I purchased for another color, and in about 30 seconds had several replies, one of which was from someone in my city, no less. We are going to meet next weekend to swap our throws. Admins at LOOMFTFTH, you, sirs, ROCK.

Okay, don't get me started on cows...we separated the mamas from the babies yesterday and I awoke this morning at 4am for 3 strait hours of baby cow bawling. It's so sad, they even have tears coming down their faces. Okay, enough sad talk.....I adore that robe...wish I had picked one up!!
