How Do They Know?

Michael works from home almost all the time now.  He doesn't leave very often unless he has a meeting so how do they know?  It can't be the fact that he drives away in his red truck.  I also drive the red truck, and they don't get into any trouble then.  Sometimes one of the teenagers drives the red truck to the dump, but again no trouble happens.  It appears that the trouble ONLY happens when Michael is on his way to an important business meeting of some sort.  I suggested that he quit talking to the animals about his work plans.  You know, leave them in the dark a bit.  Just give them food and water no other bits of information.  Apparently, he didn't follow my advice.  How do I know you ask?  Well, this morning just after he left for one of those important meetings, I had a problem.  I am not even kidding when I say he wasn't even gone for 20 minutes.  How did the cow know that he was gone and decide to let herself out of the fence and into the backyard?  I tell you...they prey on the weak in the herd, and they have figured out I am the weak farmer.  I ended up running around outside without shoes slamming any and all gates shut in order to keep her contained in the backyard.  I think I heard her laughing!

grace and peace,

Too funny! Maybe try putting some ear plugs in their ears so they don't hear your hubby talking when he's feeding them. Great picture!
