Barns, Cows, and Small Town Stores

Yesterday the Farmer Man and I took the Jeep out for a drive.  We left out before noon, in hope of avoiding some of the heat.  



Though the clouds kept building up, not a drop of rain fell.  No traffic and only the occasional jarfly providing noise.  


Everywhere we went, cows were seeking relief from the heat.  


At lunchtime we were back in our community and needed some lunch.  A stop at our local country store was in order.  Sandwiches, produce, and conversations are always available.  



We listened in on some local, "news", that garnered some laughs while we enjoyed our lunch.  Ski is our local drink.  Similar to Mt. Dew, but a stronger flavor.  



I came home with some fresh tomatoes and peaches, but not all of those onions sitting on our table.  


Linking up to The Barn Collective today.

  2. In some areas the heat is becoming lethal. I am glad the cattle had water to wade into.

  3. Lovely country photos, I live in a small rural town and enjoy visiting the our small diner too, they make the best hamburgers. We are also in need of rain and having intense heat advisories. I am enjoying your blog.

  6. Hope all the residents ...two- and four-legged survive the heat. Stay hydrated (whether with water or Ski)..... we seem to be in the only area of the country that is not under heat wave conditions (in the Pacific Northwest now).

  10. What a sweet little town. I'd be in the water with the cows; they're smart! The onions do look fresh...I was gonna ask what you would do with ALL of them. ;)

  12. Cows are seeking refuge from the heat in the ponds here, too.
    Farmers Markets are always fun to visit. I bought okra at one last Saturday.
    Have a wonderful week!

  13. Hello, this heat wave is awful. I am glad the cows have a way to cool off. The local farm stands are popular here, love the fresh veggies and fruits. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week!

  15. The cows are trying to bury themselves here- it is so muggy hot! I have never heard of Ski, but that bologna sandwich sure brings back memories!

  16. At least the cows found a good way to stay cool!
    I've not heard of Ski but I do like Mt Dew.

  17. Tomatoes & fresh peaches...yum. I've never heard of SKI 'til now. Loved tagging along on the jeep ride.

  18. The flies have been hideous along with the heat - glad they cows had a place to find respite from it all. Never heard of SKI! .... and I love those small town gathering places.

  19. Your snippet of country life looks so inviting. I love those little stores that all the locals go to.

    It makes me antsy to just GO...

  20. The cows look like they are enjoying the pond. Farmers here are pressured to fence off the ponds and creeks from cows because of the pollution they add to waterways.
