The farm sits on what USED to be a quiet country road. Suburbia has caught up...and a mega church has been built on the other side of the road that runs down the side of the farm. Yes...on quiet Sundays (or what USED to be quiet Sundays) we can wait forever for a break in the traffic to exit the farm. AND...there are Christian rock concerts outside in the summer that we get to enjoy whether we want to or not. Seriously, this church is HUGE. It may actually be the largest building in the county if you put aside the hospital. And it has branches (outposts? LOL) all over the state. The parking lot is so big that I've started calling it Six Flags over Jesus! (Please, know that I mean no disrespect to Christians, but I've seen cathedrals with smaller parking areas!)
Traffic goes whizzing past, and I know it's nothing like Blossom experienced in her quiet pasture in the middle of nowhere. The one question I didn't ask, was "Is she experienced around traffic." She walks around the cars at the farm just fine, but the moving traffic on the road really stirs her up. So we try to walk around the front of the property as much as possible.
I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!
What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
