It's Christmastime in the country

Last night at 2:21am Kris' phone rang. There was the usual chaos of him scrambling to make the noise stop - slamming his alarm clock, grabbing the phone ... before he saw it was a salesman, obviously dialing him on accident. (Unless he's just a really persistent salesman? THE most in the world?) Kris just hung up and went back to sleep.

Like most business owners, Kris can't turn off his phone at night. Before we bought the farm, my parents wanted to make sure we knew that ... that you're really never off of work when you're at home.

On holidays, the cows still need milking and feeding, but you don't do anything extra. Just the bare minimum, so you can spend the rest of the time with your family, like most everybody.

Except that salesman. Maybe he's making some more calls today.

Merry Christmas to all!
