Italy meets Minnesota & a cattle drive

Meet our Italian friends from the area of Romeo and Juliet.  We have absolutely no Italian language skills and they are equally lacking in English-speaking skills.  However, we made it work even though Randy was kicking himself for not bringing along a little translator that could help with our communication.

Google Earth to the rescue! Wonderful group filled with fun and laughter. We will see them often the next few days and share a cheerful greeting:  Minnesota!  Italia!

Using a smart phone, they show us their home and we locate our farm zooming in so close we could see the junk behind our grove of trees. Green Acres is the place to be. Too bad Google doesn’t let us know ahead of time so that we can spiff up the yard for the satellite picture.

I may have to learn some Italian in case they come to visit since our address is in their phone.

One cow decides she wants to explore a different path so Randy, the experienced cattle man, blocks the way so she must now follow the rest. Good try, Bossy.
