What’s Happening Down on the Farm

Hi Farm Fans,
Vicky and I have often joked how our daily life on the farm could easily be a reality show. Take for instance this week…We received an inquiry, through our Airbnb.com listing, not about booking our room for a night but rather our pool for a couple of hours.  This was a first.  They said they would be happy to pay the nightly rate, but would only use the pool and maybe a restroom. The interested female, who lived in the Philly area, said they were religious and preferred private pools to public.  I was leery, Vicky would be working the night in question and I needed to be a bit more clear on what this was all about.   I responded with my own questions:
Would there be alcohol?
How many people?
Would this be men, women and children?
Would there be a religious ceremony held?
She responded:
No alcohol
No ceremonies
10 total people
All girls 20-30 years of age
I quickly wrote back to say, according to my register, “you’re already booked!!”  Just a nano second before I hit send, I felt a pair of glaring eyeballs piercing 2 holes through the back of my skull. Damn it!
