It's been fun in the Big City

Mylo Hatzenbuhler - Thursday, October 24, 2013

Ja, this is Emma on Thursday, still visiting my sister in the Twin Cities.  People drive too fast here! and they drive too many cars! I wouldn't feel safe living here.  Everywhere you go there is traffic from one side of the road to the other -- it's like the whole city is a Legion baseball field and the game just let out.  I feel sorry for any cows that get loose around here.
We watched the television tonight.  They have 97 channels of tv.  We counted.  That's too many!  You can't even watch something long enough to decide it's not worth watching.  
My sister is trying to take me to every shopping mall in the Twin Cities.  We've been to 14 of them already and I think that's about enough of that.  They all have the same stores with the same dresses or shoes....if I wanted to see the same thing over and over, I'd go with Mylo to the livestock auction.
I might head home tomorrow.  Mylo really misses me.  On the phone tonight he told me he milked all the cows an extra time today, just for the company.

Ja, I'm done once.

Still visiting in the Big City.

Mylo Hatzenbuhler - Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Ja, this is Emma yet, writing my blob on Mylo's fancy website.  One of these days I suppose I'll have to leave here and head back to the farm.  I know Beulah misses me, and Mylo called to say he broke the can opener.  I don't want him to starve.  
Today was a busy day.  The sister and I went to the Mall of America to see all the stores, and in the middle of the Mall they have carnival rides.  Guess we got there when the county fair was going.  I never could find the 4H building, though.
That mall place sure is big -- over 400 stores in there.  We don't have that many in all of Emmons County.  I wanted to get a shopping bag from every store, but some of the places wanted me to have to buy something first.  They sure are picky...
I found a farm store and bought Mylo a new pair of overhauls, but I don't know if he'll like them.  Farm stores just aren't the same; instead of a hammer pocket on the leg, these overhauls have a cup holder. ... Click for More

In the Twin Cities with Emma yet

Ja, Emma reporting again

Mylo Hatzenbuhler - Saturday, October 19, 2013

I'm still in the Twin Cities, visiting my sister.  (This is still Emma.)  Mylo's back on the farm.  He took the pickup on tour to Iowa, he's home again now.  He said on the phone how much they loved him, and how much Iowa smells like pigs.
My sister and I fixed a fancy breakfast for the whole family this morning -- I made my special beet pancakes -- then we drove to this farm to visit a corn maze.  Corn mazes must be a lot of fun for city folks, but we farm wives see plenty of corn as it is, and I don't need anyone putting me in the middle of a field of corn and telling me which way to walk.   I stayed in the gift shop. ...

Ja, dis is Emma

Mylo Hatzenbuhler - Friday, October 18, 2013

Dis is Emma again.  I'm still in the Twin Cities, visiting my sister.  I declare, they are goofed up around here!  Nobody gets up until about seven in the morning; half the day is gone by then!  I was up at 4:00, as usual, and with no cows to milk I had a lot of time on my hands.  I knitted 3 afghans, and I baked bread.
My sister took me out on the town today.  We went out to a restaurant for lunch -- my sister said it was a Mexican restaurant, but my taco didn't even have sauerkraut in it, so I don't think it was authentic.  Then she took me shopping.  We went to six different clothing stores, but I didn't buy anything.  You can't do chores in those clothes.
Finally my sister took me to that IKEA store.  She sure talked a lot about that place.  There's nice furniture and such, but it turns out they just sell you a big box, and you have to put the furniture together yourself.  I'd like to see the John Deere dealer try pulling that stunt like that.
We're going to a corn maze tomorrow.  I put the butter and salt in my purse already. ... Click for More

There -- I finally left.

Mylo Hatzenbuhler - Thursday, October 17, 2013

Mylo finally got those tax applications finished and mailed to the Infernal Revenue Service.  I said I would leave on my trip the day after that, and I was right -- I did.  Mylo cleaned the egg crates out of the back seat of the go-to-town car, and I threw my suitcase in there and left town!  Off I went to visit my sister in the Twin Cities, and now I'm here!  It takes a long time to drive here, especially with so many rummage sales to stop at.  Down here in the Twin Cities, some of the roads have four lanes.  Four!  You'd think at least one of the lanes would be gravel.

Emma Schwartzenbauer-Hatzenbuhler, the woman who makes Mylo's house a home, is a Strasburg native, and, although she and Mylo grew up in the same town, they never knew each other, because Mylo went to Emmons Central, the Catholic school and Emma went to public school. ... Click for More
