Thank You Mom & Dad!!

I am very lucky to have my Mom & Dad especially when they decide to go to Amish Country! Of course they made the mistake of telling me that they were going down there on a beautiful fall day & stupid me should have called in sick but I have that work ethic thing going on! (I won't tell you how many sick days I have cuz you might not come back to visit me:) So, this morning i stopped by their house on the way to work to drop off my trash (I am too cheap too pay for trash pick up in the country so I take it to their house in the suburbs) & since I was there I dropped off my Amish Country list & money ( I tried just giving them the list but it didn't work, I had to cough up the cash:). I told them they could take my mini-van but Dad insisted on his car even though I asked him to get me horse feed!!
So let's see Mom & Dad got me 2 bags of 80# horse feed for $33.00, honey clover 1.5# for $3.35, my yummy fall cookies & loaf of bread at Hershberger's for $6.00, and 9.3# of flour for $6.60!
And I appreciate them soooooooo much for getting me everything!!!!!!!
But they did use MY FREE coupon for 2 sundaes at Mud Valley Creamery!!
Shoulda played hookie today darn it!

This is Mom & Dad in Vermont last Fall. The trip to Vermont was a late anniversary gift as they had celebrated year number 47 in June!!!!
I believe this covered bridge was on Battenkill Drive just down the road from Arlington where we were staying. We had such a great time on that trip even though Dad & I had some differences in driving directions:)

Mom's and Dad's are great! My folks help me out with things like this too. The sheep feed I get can only be gotten in one town around here (which isn't the town I work in!) and they do their shopping there every week, so they always pick up feed for me. :-)
Great post! (Oh, and YES PLEASE, I still want the Annie seed. Can I email you somewhere and give you my addy?
