"It's All in Jeans"

Sometimes Arrows point at something one had not considered before. After enough indicators, one just makes a shift in plans.

Such was the case in these parts since yesterday afternoon. As a result, Melanie decided to go to "Farm Aid" which is meeting in St. Louis. Her decision was made just with enough time to pack.

Checking out Farm Aid's web site, we note: "Working to keep family farmers on their land, Farm Aid brings together family farmers and citizens to guarantee family farm food is available to you. Farm Aid's mission is to build a vibrant family-farm centered system of agriculture in America." It sounds like it is right up our alley, or down our lane.

Melanie is going with Rolf, Ilse, and Sylvia. In the middle of that fast packing, Melanie talked with Rolf about the Banquet this evening. "Are Jeans OK to wear to the Banquet?" To which Rolf replied: "It's all in Jeans, Melanie."

Those City expectations just seem to creep up when you least expect them. And then they dissolve.
