    Jennifer and "Big Joe"

    There was a budding romance at the goat pen last week. The owner of the goats, Jennifer, was visited by Joe. He arrrived late Thursday night from Indiana.. He and Jennifer were meeting in person for the first time. They met a while back on a "farm" message board. He flew out to meet her, and her family,

    On Saturday morning asked Jennifer's father' for permission to "court" her. On Saturday evening, her dad offered his Corvette for Joe to take Jennifer out for a drive and dinner, (He NEVER lets anyone else drive the Corvette!!) They went up on Mt. Lemmon to watch the sunset, and while doing that He asked Jennifer for permission to "court" her.

    Hence the name of the new baby, "Little Joe" in honor of his visit.

    So... we will see how this developes!

    How very romantic!!


    They make a cute couple!!
