Milking to the Monkees

I love having electricity in my barn.  Now that I have a milking machine I have another reason to love it.  The lights are nice for nightime milking but what I really like about having it is  I can play music while I milk.  Someone asked me to video myself using the milking machine so I thought I'd try that today but it's really hard to do holding the camera in one hand and using the other to hook things up, pet and feed the goat, all while singing and dancing.  Here's the best I could do.


  1. ROFLMAO!!! Not even sure what to say but I can choose from the list below:
    1. You're a lot braver than I am,
    2. I don't really know you,
    3. I really admire you,
    4. I'm changing my identity to anonymous to even comment on this,
    5. Way cool!!!
    6. I really need to get a radio.

    Thanks for the good laugh.

  2. You're adorable, Karen. Tim and I got the biggest kick outta that video! And it was quite illuminating (and jealousy-inducing) to boot! My favorite part is how the suckers were pumping in beat with the music. So great! Phyllis

  3. Okay so Steve said the milk machine was just about milking in time to the music!! Thanks for the Sunday afternoon enjoyment. I loved your singing!

  4. Yeah, I didn't do that on purpose but it is kind of funny how the machine was almost in sync with the music.

  5. I miss read the title of your blog- thought it said, "Milking the Monkeys" and wondered if you had monkeys now. Nothing would surprise me.

  6. I don't have a radio in my milk space-my pumps too loud! But I'm usually singing in my head!

  7. Very cool Karen! Never know what you are coming up with next. You are truly an inspiration! How do the goats like the music?

  8. I'm sure the goats love my choice of music:) Tonight was Lyle Lovett, this morning Regina Spector. Yesterday, Kasey Chambers and the day before, Rod Stewart.
