We're all sick on the farm.

Mylo Hatzenbuhler - Thursday, January 02, 2014

Farmboy fans --
   Happy New Year from the Hatzenbuhler farm -- and don't come visiting, because we all have that flu bug.  It started Christmas Eve -- Beulah got it first, and then Emma, and now it's my turn.   We've all been achey and sore, and coughing a lot.  The last time I felt this way was during calving, but that wasn't because I had the flu.  Calving always gets a guy feeling that way.  
It's a quiet month on the rock star tour circuit, which is probably just as well, what with this cold weather.  Lieber Zeit, she was cold outside!  I think Congress must have passed a law making NorDakota part of Alaska.  What with all the oil we're making now, that was probably an easy mistake to make.

I think I'm feeling a little better from this flu thing.  Beulah is okay by now, and Emma is still feeling a little weak from it.  She had to put rubber cement on the fingers of her chore gloves because she didn't have enough strength in her fingers to gather eggs.  I finally went to the doctor about this flu virus.  He put me up on the hoist to give me the once-over, took some blood -- never gave it back, either -- and told me to come back the next day.  That second day he looked me over again, and listened to my insides.  He said "Your cough sounds better today."  I said "It should; I practiced all night."

Stay warm, fans.
