It Pays To Know People

I know people.  I know important, really smart people. 

I know Annie.

And I know Dan.  (2nd from right)

And, soon, I’ll know Matt Lauer.

First and Foremost:  Annie and Dan.  They have no idea who the other is, but they are both people one should know.

Dan’s qualities are these:  He knows the internet.  He is a new farmer with his wife and four kids, and runs, with his partner, his web design business.  He and his wife are former students of mine.  He is responsible for the SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT at the end of this post.  (Don’t you dare peek ahead.  Be patient!  You have to know about Annie and Matt first.)

Annie qualities are these:  She is an artist.  A very talented one, word has it.  She is also a former and future student…and she is creating a logo for The Goat Cheese Lady!  (soon to be unveiled, if I can ever make a final decision.)

Matt:  He is the host of the Today show.  I have on my dream list that I want to be on Good Morning America, but while I’m in New York City, I might as well hit both shows, right?

So, really, I only know 2 out of the 3.  But it is quite possible, that because of Annie and Dan’s brilliance, that someday, I might actually know Matt Lauer. 

But, if the truth be known, the last time I watched any morning shows, Katy Couric was still a co-anchor and Dianne Sawyer and Charlie Gibson were on Good Morning America.  He was still “Charlie” back then.

But, on to the SURPRISE…(please, remember, I get excited over small things.)…

Drrrruuuummmm RRRollllllll Please…

The Goat Cheese Lady is now available for your reading pleasure at… !!!!!!

Whoa.  Wait, that doesn’t seem like any big news.

Well, it is.  I do believe that:

1.  It will be easier for me to say than

2.  It will be faster to type

3.  It will be easier for people to remember

4.  When I say the name of my website on the Radio this weekend, it will be easier to say

5.  When I say the name of my website on the Today show and Good Morning America, it will be simple to say

“Well, (in the words of my Great Aunt Ramona) [clapping your hands together in a wiping motion as if you’re wiping dirt off of them], I’ve done that.”

P.S.  Matt Lauer is still on the Today show, right? 

P.P.S.  Thanks Dan and Annie!

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
