I have wondered about why he would be arriving at noon on Saturday if he was there to help milk cows. That is not the time cows are usually milked, no? Of course I could be remembering that wrong (about the time), or it could be information that has since been updated... Didn't his aunt say he had helped out at the farm before? ETA: I'm sure there are many more things to do on the farm than milk the cows, but I keep seeing that he was there to help milk the cows.
