Giving Thanks: I'm thankful I'm not a dairy farmer.

I have nothing against farmers. I love farmers. My father was a farmer, along with several other things. But dairy farmers, particularly the small operators, work constantly, and work hard. They go out and milk before breakfast, and then go out and milk after dinner. Somewhere in between there, they put in an 8-hour day.

For me, there are some days when I come home from the office (I have an office!) and it's just good to be able to say, "I'm done for the day." Then I can just put my brain in neutral for the rest of the evening, and enjoy my dinner, which was produced by farmers.
