Shortly before her spring break, Jessica called and we scheduled a date for her to visit the farm. She was inquisitive during the tour and genuinely interested. So we agreed that she would start after school ended. I have been thanking my lucky stars ever since.
On several occasions while in Chestertown (at the shoe store, at our friend’s home, at Brooks Tavern), people have said that they knew I had hired Jessica and that she was a good worker. Jessica’s mom, Sherrie, is a cardiac rehabilitation nurse at the local hospital and knows everyone!! Small town, USA.
Jessica is indeed a good worker, a good sport and a tough cookie. She is a supervisor at the University of Delaware Creamery during the semester. This summer she exercised four horses before breakfast and trained another after milking. In addition, she found time to place second in a run/bike/canoe race last weekend with no training. Oh, to be 21 again!!
