Not real scary, but cute!

Go read it!

Sun shined yesterday and again today. Warm. I rode Mijo out yesterday afternoon and moved some heifers. Went well. I gathered up hoses this morning and locked the saddle horses in so I can ride later also.

Been getting some leather work done.

Go here    and read it. Great writing!

Nice today, tho’ cooler. Went up west with the tractor and loader and pushed some pipe in the ground to fix some fence that’s been needing it. Brought home a bale when I got done. We’ve been having a few heifers who think they need to be in the neighbors. He put them back several times I guess before he told us about it. So now we have a few who think they belong over there. Trained on one that was out in there this afternoon! Bet she thinks twice about going back!

Worked on covering the swells of a saddle also. Need to start on the skirts for it.

Hope’s first day at her new job. Except she worked there before so it’s really not new. Chance got to watch boys today! He’s glad she is almost home at this writing. Matter of fact, I think I hear her pulling in now.

A friend who now lives in Colorado came up yesterday to pick up his saddle I was repairing for him and also Frankie B. He brought along another cowboy who he works with. There have been a lot of horses rode, cattle roped and the life relived in the past 24 hours around here!

We will miss Frankie, but there are lots of younger ones to take his place.

That’s what I played at today. Took the pickup and trailer to the hills so the kids could load it up with their stuff. Dropped some off in a storage unit and brought the rest home. Sure was glad my knee was still sore! )

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
